    THAT OLD GANG 'O MINE

  • #2
    So, that is what Granny got up to in the war?? That must have been a hell of a noisy environment for them ....and no earmuffs or safety glasses.
    Still, I suppose it got them out of the kitchen though

    cheers, Ken

          Hmm, It is an indoor picture, and the windows look quite bright, so obviously his shutter speed was not the fastest, yet all the ladies and overhead pullies look sharp. Some ladies also have smirks, so I'd say with my begginer semi trained eyes that this image infact was staged.

            Smirks???
            Look more like snarls to me.
            Most of these look like a bag of metric spanners.

                    looking at their dress,i wonder if this was actually 1st world war.those long flowing dresses would give an OSH inspector palpitations .

                      John,you've hurt my metric spanners feelings
                      i'll be forced to set up a support group for them.This will henceforth be known as SPAMS.
                      Society for the Protection and Adulation of Metric Spanners.I will immediately apply for a government grant to set up an office,with me as the CEO,of course.i will waste millions of taxpayers money,and will be given a knighthood and a fat pension when i retire after 6 years in office.If it's good enough for politicians,it's good enough for me!

                        OK Hans, I apologise.
                        Does having a face like a Scammell gearbox sound any better?

                            I'd like to be politically correct here but given the question I don't know if that's possible.

                            The Question: Was this photo taken before the advent of brassieres or could this have been a staged picture during the femi-nazi bra-burning peroid of the early 70's?

                            Practical comment: Many photo's of this era were posed. Folks were told, "dress nice because were taking pictures tomorrow." The frozen poses stem from the fact that poor lighting and the very slow films of the day coupled with the use of flash powder made honest photo's nearly impossible. (too slow a shutter speed hence too much blur)

                            Another practical comment: I wonder how many of their great great grandaughters still own a dress, don't have tattoos and value the differance that a healthy view of femininity brings to the world instead of renoucing it? I revel in my masculinity and the women in my life revel in their feminity. I'm not better than them, just differant. That's the way the big guy wanted it.

                            Thank you to our families of soldiers, many of whom have given so much more then the rest of us for the Freedom we enjoy.

                            It is true, there is nothing free about freedom, don't be so quick to give it away.
