Why are you reporting this puzzle?

My father-in-law, now 95 years old, worked in these coke ovens long ago. The work was brutal. The stories are amazing.

Thanks for your commets redina1 :) And thanks for the link! I plan to write a story around this era and include some history about the coke ovens and workers. Suffice it to say this kind of job would not pass any work-place safety inspections of today! Also, Redstone Colorado and the Crystal River Valley (near where this photo was taken) is one of the most beautiful places on the planet imho. I hope you get to visit and explore :) When I next find myself out east I'll definitely check out the one from your link!

This was very challenging! What life must have been like when these things were being used. I'll bet you FIL's stories are so interesting. Thanks. :))
