A Woman's Work...

Forging on, and coming to week 4 of Women's History Month (well, the end of the week anyway...), let us continue with the everyday work women have done in the past! Again, I don't really have much to say on the topic- mostly due to having chosen all of these from my massive folder of unidentifiable photographs.

Enjoy!

Working on a Tractor Engine


Washing Clothes
(Notice the Wringer- my grandmother almost lost two fingers
on an automatic wringer)

and being inspected by staff officers,
