Women Making Bombs

[Women Assembling Bombs] [Photograph]

Notes: A gelatin silver print image of women working in a munitions factory assembling aerial bombs. A man, possibly the supervisor, stands on the opposite side of the table. A 48-star American flag hangs above them.

Your cataloguer has no expertise in identifying bombs, but these seem somewhat more advanced than those used by the United States during World War I, suggesting the image may date from slightly later.

Image: 9-3/4 by 7-5/8 inches. Marked "933" in the negative. Unmounted but protected in an archival mat and held in place with clear photo corners.

Edition + Condition: Good contrast and tonal range. Minor cracking to the image surface; tack holes in three corners with the lower right corner chipped off.

Publication: [ca. 1920].

Item No: #360838

Price: $750
