    My brother in law was a cable splicer for the phone company, turned out he was color blind. Always wondered why there was such lousy phone service in the area.

    I can't tell if they are clogs or not but he sure has a flat instep for the length of his feet

    You're right I didn't notice that before. Kind of like his feet are sneaking up on his clogs and hasn't quite finished the process yet.

    July, 1942. More at the Library of Congress.

    The finished gas mask face pieces in the foreground were just flaps of rubber without eye pieces, outlet valves, straps, tabs, and other accessories when they started on the long moving belt at the far end of the line. By the time they've reached this end, however, a hundred pairs of hands have worked on them, machining, clamping, riveting, testing, and inspecting each one until the completed masks are packaged in the final stages of production. All this activity takes place in a Midwest vacuum cleaner plant which has been converted to war work. Eureka Vacuum, Detroit, Michigan.
