Ok, I admit it: there's no tech hook to this post. But I would be failing in my duties as your faithful Internet curator if I'd come across a photo of a young woman with bacon tied to her feet standing in a giant skillet holding a huge spatula and declined to post it.
So, yes, this photo was taken in November 1931 in Chehalis, Washington at the town's Egg Festival. The occasion was a try to break the world record for largest omelette. Two women tied bacon to their feet and skated around the warming skillet to grease it. Then a team of chefs cracked and beat 7,200 eggs and made a breakfast delight.
Vern Gorst, a self-taught pilot and entrepreneur was on-hand to capture the momentous occasion. He donated his photo collection to the University of Washignton, who uploaded it to Flickr Commons.

Emissions and fuel economy haven't exactly been areas of strength for past rotary power plants, but absolutely no one with a soul has ever cared.
