Looks like this crane was self propelled, that's the drive chain.

What is the purpose of the large chain coming from the car to the trucks in
this photo? Todd Horton

I think this is appropriate for this list.

This photo is part of a 4K + photo collection documenting the flood control
work in the Miami River Valley in southwest Ohio.

http://www.miamiconservancy.org/resources/ConstructionPhotos-WM.asp?ID=3024

Photo is dated 12/17/1918

Contextual photos are at these links:

Many more can be found from this launch page:

As can be expected, most cover river and dam related topics, but with the
odd rail-related photo (steam and some traction) and great period context
photos. If you're a fan of steam powered shovels and drag lines, you'll
also find the site interesting.
