    Circa 1930, I wonder if they were testing prototype Buegler pinstripe tools; introduced 1934, pat'd 1935.

    Did somebody say "patent"?

    I see they were wearing shorter dresses than usual, maybe for safety reasons, but why the 2-3" heels,they had to sore feet after work!

    I was taken by the clean, bright work space.

    Also the five women on the near side of the line appear to be working, the 4 on the other side, looking through the windows, appear to be watching the camera.

    Evy'buddies joking about the smell. When I saw and clicked the pic my reaction was similar, thinking "good thing THAT didn't get recorded!"

    And what ever reason, I forget to investigate patents. I'm vaguely familiar with striping tools. Compared with 'artistic' stripers with fine brushes, mechanical stripers are miniature paint rollers. Ideal for a long parallel line. Wheels can be interchanged for width and combinations of width.
    But either way, it's all in the little finger!
