Rolls of sheetmetal and, if so, probably aluminum - seems like that much steel would be a problem placed that far forward of the axles.

Yeah they are designed like filters but there's no fibre in between the mesh.
My guess is still filters though.

Looks like Copper Armature Windings for big Electric Motors (200 HP +) drinking

Nah, they are rolls of some material. The positioning of the strapping indicates that. The color looks like rolled up plastic sheeting.

Armature windings look nothing like that. The armature is the part that spins around inside a motor or generator and the windings are done in two or more axial loops, not radial. You're probably thinking of field coils that are on the outer structure of a motor/generator and they aren't that either, as they are not wound radially either. Both armature and field coil windings have visible laminated metal cores as well and there are none.

quasi more or less got it, they are rolls of coated steel (called simply, 'steel coils'). I don't know what they are coated with. you can see see several other steel coils in the background. These 3 coils total just over 41,000 lbs, the front 2 weighing roughly 15,000 lbs each and the back one 11,000 lbs. They are loaded near the center of a 48' step-deck trailer. Hauling steel coils is alot of work, beginning with setting the dunnage in place, you can see the front of a 'coil rack' by the front coil, before these were invented you would have to use more wood and build a cradle for them, this load required 9 chains and binders, and had to be fully tarped. the whole process from backing into the loading bay to finishing tarping and ready to leave the plant was roughly 90 minutes.
