This is another evocative scene captured by Walter Nurnberg. As in most of his photographs here we see human effort, tenacity and skill given equal place with the technology. He believed that productive work was essential to human dignity. On his first visit to a new industrial site he did not take his camera; he simply watched and pondered. Then he composed his pictures with immense care using natural sunlight and his own powerful lamps.
