    I'd say the guy on the left is the journeyman (hat means journeyman), the middle guy is the salesman (tie) and they guy on the right is the apprentice (ears).

    Thanks for sharing those great photos of those who preceded us.

    The guy on on the right reminds me of the line in Fargo, "He was kind of funny looking."

    Great pictures!
    Can anyone read the pressure gauge?
    Steam heat with the double hung window thermostat.
    Is there snow on the ground outside, the leaves are still on the trees though.
    If snow, that radiator could probably melt it with the windows open.

    It looks like they're pressure testing the system with hose attached.
