1936 Chevy assembly line: When men were men and machines couldn’t function without them

Reader Greg Gieselman onpassed this link for a video of a 1936 car-assembly line.

He said it “is certainly a history lesson in only a few minutes about where these things we find so important came from years ago.”

Ergonomcs? We don’t need no stinkin’ ergonomics in the 1936 workplace!
