Pretoria
Image by Rob Ketcherside
Apparently taken at a mining trade show in Pretoria, South Africa.

The sign says "Traylor type vibrating feeders". Wilkes must be Byron’s colleague next to it. The JG on the wall is for the manufacturer, Jeffrey Galion Machinery Company.

Photo by my distant relative Byron Bird. Scanned from a stereoview Kodachrome transparency.

The images were all water damaged, creating interesting stress effects. In this case, only one was salvageable. See more of his images.
