    Not to mention no eye protection, it looks more like a training school. It's pretty clean (few shavings) and no serious machine shop used "lantern tool posts" especially in any kind of production atmosphere. Turning between centers with drive dogs is some pretty basic beginners techniques, though it is still occasionally a useful technique.

    Actually, turning between centers is one of the most accurate way of turning a shaft on both ends and having all diameters perfectly concentric.

    No eye protection and a bracelet on each wrist makes me think it's a staged photo. Ah well, at least she has her long hair in a snood.

    Many of these war photos of women workers were made to encourage women to join the workforce and, as a result, tried to show that a woman didn't have to sacrifice her femininity while doing a "man's job". They weren't meant to demonstrate proper safety practices.
