Good Evening All. Last one tonight is a GENUINE UNIDENTIFIED POSTCARD, plain back, postally unused so no clues! click here

My views are that those machines resemble those gadgets for tumbling/polishing pebbles, albeit on a much larger scale?

Nor that. I thought I had the hang of posting links, but clearly I was wrong. Meanwhile just Google images for Woking Paper Works.

I think Lazarus The 2nd has it, I can't seem to get any joy with Woking Paper Works?

I've had a look at the Woking photos and others and I think that paper mill may be correct. It would explain the high mounted roller on the right.

See smaller roller

You'd need a paper mill to print those links out;)

A wire rope works?

A wild guess... A derelict wire rope works

How about drums for transatlantic/ocean phone cable?

The period woulld be about right. Those massive bearings are presumably needed to carry such a weight of cable. Cannot explain why the drum on the right is hoisted so high!
