Explanatory note: oil on canvass by J. F. Layraud, presented at the Universal Exhibition of 1889, where it won a prize. It represents an ironworks hall at the Saint-Chamond shipbuilding yards: in the middle is a hammer, identical to the one that symbolises Le Creusot (and that was in use at the Schneider factories at that time), during the manufacture of a cannon.
