Try to find the spot where the photographer was standing.
The keyboards suggest that these are the type-setting machines (Monotypes or Linotypes).

Amazing image. Love this type of scene. Such clarity!
It´s a powerful image.
I recently could see one of this machines in the Science Museum of Granada.
What a wonderful and powerful capture !
They really thrashed that old Linotype !
