The Typesetters, 1910
The Typesetters, 1910, so many things to love about this photo. For one thing, the sign on the left wall about spreading disease, next to the (presumably) shared cup at the fountain. And look how gigantic that room is and how many workers are there, and not a press in sight. Just the typesetters.
