Urrr, urrr, urrr, ahrr, ahrr, ahrrr...

I gotta admit, whenever I see pictures like this, or get to sneak into places like the cannon lathe building at Watervliet Arsenal, I get all bandy-legged, knuckle-dragging, Tim-The-Toolman-Taylorish...

I dunno where this picture was taken, but if forced to choose - I'd say Vicker's Elswick works, though hell, it could be the Clyde or Barrow works too. All did cannon building. I suppose it could also be Armstrong's before they merged with Vickers.
