This image of a workbench in the Campbell Carriage Factory shows a body under construction, and beyond it a seat.

Workbenches line the walls of this room, with windows for light. Shown here are a seemingly simple frame which will make a carriage body. It is actually a rather sophisticated piece of cabinet work. Further up the bench a seat is being pieced together.
