  1. Great picture. Indeed great collection of industrial America, when skies and the moon were the limits. The test of American's industrial might was boundless... It's own civilization of God's Free men...

    Sadly Detroit in 2013 is what seem to project 21st century......

  2. Great photo; bu Ohhhh, I get vertigo just looking it. Yikes! Those guy in the pic have 'you know whats' made of steel. I could not have been part of that group for all the money in the world.

  3. methinks it might have been rivitted together, not welded . . . . . .

    But that's just me.
