Would help to have some scale to it but I'm guessing industrial boiler or dryer?

Either a very nasty amusement park ride or a close up shot of the squirrel cage on a blower motor?

OK, for scale, the round things on the right side are about 4" in diameter.

Geez, way to go PontiacDad, close enough to be correct!

It is actually a shot of the rear tubesheet, firetubes (to the right), flexible staybolts (left) and crownsheet (on the bottom of the staybolts) on the waterside of a 2250 horsepower steam locomotive boiler. Took the picture this morning after cleaning for required annual maintenance.

I really thought that would stump y'all longer than the first guess!

Lucky me
I helped install subarine windows in the sides of a 10,000 gallon water softner back in the early 80'* for Esso. They're boiler was similar.
