Photo Friday.

(Stolen from the Phlog. Read the Phlog!)

I recently discovered that the Library of Congress has a Flickr page, and I can’t stop looking at it. Srsly. I need to be banned, or I’m never going get anything else done. Here are a few of the best flicks – visit the actual page if you like, but don’t say I didn’t warn you.

The coloring on this one is amazing:


Description: “Woman aircraft worker, Vega Aircraft Corporation, Burbank, Calif. Shown checking electrical assemblies. 1942 June”


“Children in the tenement district, Brockton, Mass. 1940 Dec”


“Rural school children, San Augustine County, Texas. 1943 April”


“Japanese-American camp, war emergency evacuation, [Tule Lake Relocation Center, Newell, Calif.] 1942 or 1943.”

Look at all of these bad-ass women! These ladies rock:


” Women at work on C-47 Douglas cargo transport, Douglas Aircraft Company, Long Beach, Calif. 1942 Oct.”


“Woman machinist, Douglas Aircraft Company, Long Beach, Calif. 1942 Oct.”


“An A-20 bomber being riveted by a woman worker at the Douglas Aircraft Company plant at Long Beach, Calif. 1942 Oct.”


“Yaqui Indians. [between 1910 and 1915]”


“Lincoln, Nebraska. 1942”

(I wonder how much longer that lasted.)
