Here's the balance of what I have. Pretty amazing to see the amount of hand work involved in the early bodies.

Great photos! It makes you realize just how much things have changed in the last seventy or eighty years. Men certainly worked harder in most cases.

Do you know what YEAR these pieces are for, the Pics do not enlarge enough to see the Detail, only get smaller with (+) so I can't tell.

Not exactly. Wickenden graduated college in 1910, then received his Masters and went to Studebaker soon after, leaving in 1922. That's how I came up with the 1918 date. Sending the full size to Richard Quinn, hopefully he'll be able to give a more exact timeline. I had to resize them smaller to upload on here, 14M pixels on the originals.

Harder and longer. When my father worked in a factory in 1917,he worked 12 hours per day, six days per week.
