Photograph of close-up view of factory worker adjusting a lidded piece of machinery, ca.1950. At center, a factory worker can be seen facing to the left. The man is gripping a mechanical device in his hands. The worker wears a large pocketed coat that extends past his knees. The worker also wears a simple pair of glasses. With his left hand, the worker grips the cylindrical body of a machine. Two cylindrical bars can be seen at the machine's center, while a large disk is seen below near its base. Above the machine's body, a large cylindrical container in the shape of a pot is visible. With his right hand, the man grips the handle of the lid covering the container. A small latch is also seen on the left side of the container. In the foreground at the bottom of the image, a large table can be seen that supports the mechanical device. In the background, a brick wall with two extending supports and a large window are visible.
