Appreciate the correction. I had forgotten that the 4th photo was steel legs with cement on top. If I had looked good at my own photo I would have caught that. Thanx!

The caption description of the fourth photograph needs minor correction - it is not a wood trestle. The bent supports and its cross-bracing are I beams.
