This picture was tweeted by @HistoryInPictures the other day, and I thought you lot deserved to see it.
It was captioned ‘Making propaganda posters’, but I’d be surprised if that’s what’s actually going on here. Even the British found printing posters a bit more efficient than hand-drawing each one, and this picture, a bit of internet searching tells me, was taken in Port Washington in 1942.
So what are they up to? My money is that this is some kind of art school – they have proper desks after all – and these women are learning graphic design. But I am prepared to stand corrected on this one.
