While famous for their walking draglines and stripping shovels, the Marion Steam Shovel (later Marion Power Shovel) Company also built an extensive line of smaller shovels, cranes, draglines and related machines for general construction use. This compilation of 123 beautiful black and white photographs document nearly every model built for construction use from 1884 through 1975. Railroad and logging machines, as well as larger mining machines used in construction, are also included. An Index is provided to easily find photographs and information on specific models. Includes shovels, draglines, backhoes, clamshells, cranes, log loaders and railroad ditchers.
