Note the ear protection and eye protection the 1917 workers are wearing.

No Workmans Comp. then. Do it for your country. :us:
It was better then being in the trenches. One of the commenters under the vid said he had a copy
of a relatives worker card from 1917 that stated he was an Essential Worker, therefor not draftable.

This reminds me of the reason our country is in such a bad condition - OSHA is responsible for stopping IDIOTs from killing themselves and those IDIOTs are reproducing more of themselves!

The 1917’s going into the crates gave me a flashback to a gentleman I know that has an “open but not touched” crate of M1 Garand’s that he came across. He let me look into the crate ONCE. I’ve seen cases of M-16’s and M-4’s since but I don’t think I have ever seen another vintage case lot other than in pictures. They used to “can” Thompson SMG’s and M1 Carbines for long term storage in what roughly looked like a 30 gal oil drum.

I had a contract in the 90’s to disassemble and reassemble a leather belt drive machine shop that was donated to a museum in El Paso. It was really cool.
Oh, did you notice, they were wearing ties in the shop…

Yes, different world then, when this country could pull together for the common good, from the floor sweeper to the CEO to support the troops in the hellish trenches. :us:
I bet that was fascinating. :+1:
