The vignette gives a 19th century feel to this image but the cranes and bridge appear much more modern.
You should change your user title to Craneman.

Indeed, but I couldn't do much about the modernity.
Anyway, with time, modern things become vintage, etc.
In the past centuries metalwork was, in many parts of the world, one of the relatively well-developed technologies, but on smaller scales.
I think a Victorian engineer would feel quite at ease with today's cranes—might miss only the boiler, drums, noise, and pistons, and find the construction a bit light, and so on.
Unfortunately, where I live, a "crane" is "une grue" and a phonetic transposition to "crâner" would not be too happy as the word means "show off" and "crâneur" is "a show off".
The kind of embarrassing truth I prefer to avoid.

Industrial scene with a white vignette. Totally doesn't work for me. Like the original image.

The title made me smile and I learned a new bit of French too.
I also learned recently that one measure of the performance of your city is the number of cranes you can count.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass
