“A factory (previously manufactory) or manufacturing plant is an industrial site, usually consisting of buildings and machinery, or more commonly a complex having several buildings, where workers manufacture goods or operate machines processing one product into another.” (Wikipedia)

“The assembly plant of the Bell Aircraft Corporation at Wheatfield, New York (directly East of Niagara Falls, USA). The aircraft in the photo are Bell P-39Q-30-BE Airacobra fighters (USAAF serials 44-71105/44-71504), and Bell P-63A-8-BE Kingcobra fighters (USAAF serials 42-69211/42-69410). While externally very similar, the P-39 had a smaller and more rounded tail section and a three-bladed propeller. The two lines at left are P-39Qs, followed by three lines of P-63As. Then are two lines of almost completed P-39Qs (serials clearly visible), and a last line of P-63As. Note the absence of any workers and tools.” (Wikipedia)
