Birmingham Small Arms (BSA) Factory, the rifle stock manufacturing department in 1907;


Yea look at all those unguarded belts! The OSHA inspector would have a fit if he seen that. Of course people back in those days had enough common sense not to stick their hands in certain places!

Standard for an industrial shop 19th to mid 20th century.

Selective breeding!
The smart ones survived and bread.

And the smart ones didnt wear:
Hipster beard
Loose fitting clothes

And they minded where they walked.
