Ad for A. Corrit (1930)

I've been plowing through a special issue of the China Press dedicated to real estate and construction and among the many gorgeous things there was this ad for the construction firm A. Corrit. It shows the process of driving Oregon pine piles into the ground. All Shanghai skyscrapers had to rest on these foundations, from the late 1920s to the late 1930s.
