    I originally thought it was 10.30 but looking again at the hands, I think it might be 10 to 6 which I should imagine is 17.50. Wonder what time they will finish their shift?

    What a fascinating and cool record. My, how differently people used to dress at work.

    Okay. That makes sense.

    The "rolling machine" may be a calendering press (that's "calender" as opposed to "calendar"), which was used for giving a glossier surface to finished albumen prints. The top roller would spin faster than the bottom roller to polish the surface as it passed through the rollers. I think there is a picture of a calendering press in Reilly's book at albumen.stanford.edu.

    Look up top; it appears they're under some sort of translucent awning. So, they're basically in a giant light tent.

    it is probably a building with a clearstory monitor / skylight windows (like a factory ).
    if this was taken in the summer, these folks are boiling hot seeing how they are dressed ...
