"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

Women labourers form a human chain, raising concrete to the top floor of a construction site.
Such building projects invariably use poor, itinerant women from adjoining states, rather than cranes.
They are cheaper.
