View of new turret lathe (center) manufactured by American Tool Works. It is standing on a factory floor flanked by other similar machines that are attached to rotary belts, suspended from the ceiling. Electrical light bulbs are strung above each work station. The factory room is lit by both natural light from the windows and electricity. The original envelope housing this photograph was inscribed with the following information: “They [the lathes] have a stop for cross carriage, same as Gisholt which you cannot see in view.”
