 Wow gents.... looks like some old production photos done in a Bulova factory for WWII instruments.  Very interesting.  The below information is from an Etsy listing where a gentlemen/lady has these pictures for sale for just shy of a grand.

However the pictures are below for your knowledge base.  There's the original listing as well:

They are a little dry...but really cool too. Nice find regardless!  I would guess these or similar photos are also available through LOC for the cost of printing, or free as digital copies.  $1K is $teep!
