He's got a flat cap and a donkey jacket - how much more ppe do you need?
The second picture looks like a scale mock up of the NASA VAB. Maybe that's where they filmed the moon landings and are destroying the evidence. Surroundings don't look much like Florida though.
If a LandRover doesn't leak oil, it's run out.

In the second Berliet photo, I don't think I've ever seen other dumpers with a clevis/eye fitting for locking the body in the tipped position.
If I were planning a quarry, and had the machinery available, I'd sure have done something about the rock on the top of the cliff above the plant building!

I guess the cab door on the Winget was at the back?

The Belaz digger in the 6th picture down was a result of a Russian copy of a Hy-mac 580, rumor has it that Hy-mac sent a machine out there to see if they could sell them there and the Russians simply stripped it down and copied it.

Staggering how those Bedford tiipers got around in the sh1t.
The photo of the AEC Marshall and the Wetherill 62B so typical of the era.
