Railroad track workers used double crow bars to straighten tracks and other uses.
"One day we were straightening the tracks. We had crowbars which we put under the track. At a signal we would all heave together, straightening the tracks an inch at a time. The sweat poured down our faces in the sun, burning our eyes and putting us in a savage humor," wrote Eric Sonnichsen in "I Was Workin' on the Railroad" in American Mercury, June 1930.
