Industrial Archaeology on YouTube!

In case you've never tried, go to and search for Industrial Archaeology.  People have posted lots of videos about industrial history, work, and life.  Some great search terms are "industrial heritage," "industrial archaeology," and "factory tour."

Here are a couple of examples:

George Carter, P.E., provided this tour of the W. A. Young Machine Shop on Water Street in Rices Landing, PA, on the Monongahela River.

 Bob Pfeil of Watervliet Arsenal Museum guides a small group though the antique, belt-driven machinery in the museum. Machines demonstrated include a drill press, stamping machine, shaper, horizontal mill, lathe, planer, and grinder.
