The Lustron Assembly Line

In this image, porcelain faced steel panels are coming out of a fusion furnace. This was one of 11 production line furnaces where the enamel was fused to the steel panels at 1,300 degrees Fahrenheit. Note the lack of protective clothing worn by workers during this process, a stark contrast to assembly line jobs today.
