Men work at machines used for finishing hats at the Waring Hat Manufacturing Co.'s Vark St. plant in Yonkers, New York. Most of the men are sitting on wooden benches. Ducts, fans, and belts appear overhead in the background. The investigator noted that a good system of ducts and fans eliminates dust in this room.
