    Love the WWII faux military covers with the IHC symbol in place of the eagle. What a clever way to boost morale by showing the workers that they were fighting the war just as much as the enlisted men (with less risk, of course).

    I love pictures of the people from the 30s to the 50s, The Men looked like Men and Women looked like ladies when they were both at work! I don't know why, but maybe the clothing that show's pride and care of the person's appearance, even at work! Today's young people are really strange, and screwed up, trying to mold the too sex's into one sex! What" with the young men and their Twat Knots and skinny jeans and being girlie like along with women looking masculine ! I guess this old man of only a couple months from 70 years old, doesn't much like what He sees in our youth now today, It worry's me!

    It all goes back to Upspeak, skibo. Directness in ones speech is considered too aggressive.

    I am right behind ya pal. What would have our parents and grandparents thought of today's behavior. Who could have dreamed up the world we live in today.

    Actually, WE dreamed up today's world...the kids are working on the next. My wife and I are looking forward to all the kids waiting for us to teach them business, computers, and shop skills.

    USS Wyoming captain with press and radio women in 1941.

    View taken in late 1941, showing Captain Van Leer Kirkman, USN (center), with unidentified press and radio women, at Norfolk, Virginia. Note splinter padding on bridges; range-finder positions; life rafts on turret. Guns are 12".
