Women At Work: Compressed Air Grinder   Leave a comment

Women in industry. Aircraft motor workers. A million dollar baby, not in terms of money but in her value to Uncle Sam, twenty-one-year-old Eunice Hancock, erstwhile five-and-ten-cent store employee, operates a compressed-air grinder in a Midwest aircraft motor plant. With no previous experience, Eunice quickly mastered the techniques of her war job and today is turning out motor parts with speed and skill. Note protective mask and visor, two vital safety accessories. Office of War Information photo, August 1942.
