Tim here is the link to the collection where the photo resides

Says Photos are generally of the construction of the Concrete cement plant in the '20s and '30s.

The photo I shared looks like it may be a small cement production facility with a rotary kiln to the far left.

Is the second one a rock crusher? There is a stone quarry here in Sterling MA with a huge crusher
complex that looks like that, plus a large modern wet batch plant. And maybe a tar-gravel mixer too.
I'd love to get inside there and take pictures of it all. Or a drone could do it. 😂
