A Weekend Time Sink

Hat tip to Everyday No Days Off Gun Blog for this link to an amazing collection of WWII Photographs.  I could easily spend hours there - just spent a half hour over lunch looking through a few of them.  In what seems to be a publicity photo, a model poses with a B-17F nose bombardier's dome at Douglas Aircraft. 
Well, I suppose I'm assuming the "Temporary" badge, nail polish, gold watch, rings, double photographer's lights and her general cleanliness indicate this is a carefully crafted picture.  She might well be a worker at Douglas, but this was certainly not a case of a photographer walking in and taking a snapshot of someone at work. 

A reminder of what many of our parents or grandparents went through to give us this nation being taken out from under us by the FSA.
