South Bend Lathe Works factory. A row of 25 lathes (at the time the standard build batch) under assembly. These are 9-inch “Workshop” machines each with a build sheet hanging from the tailstock end of its bed. Although the room would have been cleaned and tidied for the photograph it is still possible to spot backgear covers on the floor and, on the nearest lathe, a spring-bottom oil can.
