Movember

A couple of the guys in the foreground have epic mustaches, very fitting for "Movember"!

Belts

Machine age=a great many belt driven machines. And those machine belts were made of leather.

Can someone explain

what type of hides these are? I thought cow hides weren't that uniformly square. What would have been produced in the Big Easy to be shipped elsewhere back then? Plus, I wonder where they're going?
