At about 7 minutes into this, it gives dates and a brief explaination,
about why P&H made their own welders. In fact, it seems they might have been
at the forefront of going from riviting to welding. Lots of P&H rivited bridgecranes
all around here still doing fine today.
I might add the several I have used, have far less bounce in them
than any contemporary welded crane that I have used has. (Design not the process the reason).
Got some cell pics of the old Beauty
they put out in front, over on National Ave.
.....need to up-load them later.
