I really, really enjoyed seeing the pictures; Thanks for posting them. I, too, wondered if my '46 or '48 VACs might actually be in the picture.
What makes me sad and angry is that this is just another reminder of what a great nation we once were. Old pics of the big Farmall plant make me feel the same way. To be able to push raw iron ore in one end of a facility and have tractors emerge from the other is an amazing thing--- something that can't happen now because of tree-hugging government regulations. Sorry for my rant.
