The note at the bottom of the photo,

says it was used in the building of the aqueduct in California. 

I’m just guessing but.... gigantic portable cement mixer?

Had this idea too,
but it seems the mixing bowl stands behind it and isn't part of the vehicle.

It seems to me it is driven by the one cylinder engine, on the table to the right.

There is some machinery on the rail car to the right of the Holt engine... 
No idea what?

The rectangular thing on top of the "table" might be some sort of water tank,
as it has an "in" and "out" pipe.

The surge tank is part of the cooling system,

piping runs from bottom of radiator into top of tank,

bottom line from tank runs down to transmission,

then into lower block of engine.

This was located on a firm's premises in Eastern Germany.

Could have been Dresden, but I'm not sure - have to dig.

There used to be a similar sector plate here,

to access the siding across the road in the middle of this picture,

but it's gone sometime in the last 30 or so years .
