Relics of industry

I'm partial to visually interesting objects that were used in the workplace. The items pictured here represent the rail, agriculture and auto industries. The railroad crossing sign with reflectors has taken on a softer appearance after years of being outside. The International Harvester tractor grill, from the 1950s or earlier, has an expressive face. The shapely and colorful iron object, called Tuff Girl, is a slide hammer used to bang dents out of auto bodies. A body banging a body -- collision shop humor.
