I had the opportunity recently to photograph inside one of Kelowna's oldest machine shops, Monashee Manufacturing, inside the 1940's style building with a cathedral like feel are machines of various vintages, including a few that date back to the second world war era. I felt like I had walked back in time. The machinery is used by the employees to take raw metal of different sizes to be shaped, pressed, welded and cut into various finished projects. The image posted is from an old milling machine, it was taken with my 4 x 5 view camera and a 120 mm lens.
