I can’t decide which picture I like better, the two guys fighting with sand blasters or the gas masks.

SHOT FIRED AGAINST STEEL TO CLEAN IT
A scene suggesting a fantastic stage setting is enacted daily in a remote room of the General Electric Company’s plant at Schenectady, N.Y. There, under the glare of powerful lights, gnomelike workmen scour large steel castings to prepare them for a coat of paint. Hoses in their hands discharge a continuous, clattering volley of fine steel shot upon the part being cleaned. In this dusty atmosphere, the men must wear headgear like divers’ helmets, with fresh washed air supplied to them continuously through tubes from outside the room.
