1905 Pittsburgh Iron Workers Colorized Real Photo Postcard

107 years ago today, this colorized real photo postcard featuring a crew of Pittsburgh Iron Workers was postmarked in Pittsburgh and sent to Miss Elisabeth Park in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania. Not sure if the gentleman who sent the card, Fred, is one of the iron workers pictured. His note basically says he anxiously awaiting a reply to his letter. I would like to know what the "eight hours" on the card refers to. The card still used the old spelling of Pittsburgh where it ends with "g." The city's name officially changed to its current spelling with the "gh" on July 19, 1911.
