George;

 

No, they are tie-downs for securing loads.

 

The were usually welded to the outside side of the top chord, or tops of sides, or even sides of ribs toward their tops.  They were very useful with metal banding, especially.

Is it the rings used to move a gondola with a rope or chain?  Do they go on top or the bottom of a gondola's side?
