- 1942 - 1945
Three-quarters portrait of two unidentified women leaning against a piano, facing front, and smiling. The woman at left, an worker from the Albina Engine & Machine Works shipyard, is wearing a hat, jacket, and overalls. She is holding a welder’s mask with the number 1864 and the word “ALBINA” on the front, and a skull and crossbones on the side. The woman at right is wearing a matching blouse and skirt and is holding a purse and gloves. The photograph may have been taken at the Victory Center outside the Pioneer Courthouse in downtown Portland. The building partially visible in the background is probably the Meier & Frank building. The note “Albina shipbuilding” is written on the negative sleeve.
