Radio factory, 1925

Found at Shorpy, the photoblog specializing in old images. Anyone who enjoys history, photography, or just exploring would be well served to visit the site.

I won't use this image for any socio-political commentary, although it does provide an interesting American historical counterpoint to the recent images out of China showing enormous factories, and as a reminder that this country rose to power and prominence with a manufacturing economy, not a service economy.
