Good Evening All

This is A GENUINE UNIDENTIFIED POSTCARD as usual unposted and with no clues.

We are never going to get the location but does anyone know what the machines are and what the factory produces?

Possibly something to do with carpets.

My guess is making 'chicken wire' fencing.

  Belatucadrus 01:37 17 Jun 2017

I'll agree with the wire but the proportions of the end product looks wrong for chicken wire, the formers seem to be producing quite tall column shapes and you can see right through them so they're probably only one layer thick.

Metal or plastic?

Carpet and cloth comes on cardboard tubes.

The more I look at it, the more I have absolutely no clue whatsoever what is going on!!

2nd guess. Possibly fake or faux stone pillars are being manufactured. There's a few finished ones standing vertically in background. [as mentioned above by Belatucadrus]

I like the idea of the wire frame as steel reinforcement for a columnar structure of some form. Not sure about the Faux stone pillars, it looks too much like a production line for something that would be a real niche product, how many fake columns does the building trade get through ?

Foundation piles maybe ?

I was thinking stage props for epic films.

It looks to me to be the final room of a factory, drawing wire, which is coming out from another place and rolled onto a drum in the centre.

On the left appear to be several horizontal bundles of metal rods, one of which is surrounded by a mesh tube. There appear to be a number of similar mesh tubes stacked vertically on the right.
