I'm just trying to work out what they are manufacturing.

That looks to be a gun barrel (large) being lowered into place on a railway wagon. Any support for that notion?

I also assumed it was artillery.

Only the military-industrial complex's grandfather, could afford that monster.

Look at this sumbitch, human powered tractor moving heavy stones slung underneath. Looks like the expected soft ground by the shoes on the wheels.

To Bring John Wayne to the silver screen, getting the action on film is only half the battle. You also need sound, then to marry the two smoothly. In the world of rug rats, aircraft and motorized toys, quiet is at a premium, that's why they build sound stages. But John Wayne doesn't shoot well indoors so the sound truck must go to the wide open.

I think Digr posted this picture before, but this is the lifting capacity of each crane.

Never heard of these. Instead of steering skis, a steering track, kind of like four wheel drive. There is only one track and a complex system of bending it at the steering point. Probably didn't catch on because it's too complex.

Two biggies, 50,000 ton presses. These were paid for by the US Air Force(you) for forging aluminum and titanium aerospace parts.

275hp from 270 cubic inches was no mean feat way back then. An excess of 1hp per cu in was, for a long time, the Holy Grail of performance.

You wouldn't want to drive one of those Offy engines on the street though, really balky, like riding a high strung stallion.
