The title of this picture is STEAM PUMP taken by Lewis Hine in 1920. The human subject is a powerhouse mechanic and I think the picture works so well because it depicts power deriving from the machine and the man.

On a personal level I like the picture because it reminds me of my late father-in-law, whom I admired and who was also a powerhouse mechanic who toiled in the powerhouses of General Motors.
