Photograph showing two workers holding a smiling girl as they stand in front of a sign at Albina Engine & Machine Works in Portland. The sign reads: “To MY COUNTRY, and to President Franklin D. Roosevelt, as its leader: We the undersigned employees of Albina Engine and Machine Works and Shipyard, hereby pledge that we Will refrain from taking even one unnecessary hour off work until this war is won. May God give our country and our President strenth [sic] to achieve a glorious victory.” The photograph was taken as Albina workers began signing a pledge against absenteeism. A cropped version of this photograph was published on Page 9 of the Oregon Journal on February 7, 1943. It had the following caption: “ ‘WHAT WE’RE FIGHTING FOR,’ say Jack Schmidt, left, and Bert Lowry of Albina, who hold Nancy Vincent in front of their pledge ‘that we will refrain from taking even one unnecessary hour off work until this war is won.’ “ The photograph accompanied a story headlined “Albina Workers Sign Pledge / Absenteeism ‘Voted Out.’” Also see image Nos. 375A0623, 375A0678, 375A0679, and 375A0681. Image note: The number 201 is written on the negative and is visible in the lower right corner of the image. The text “Albina shipbuilding” is written on the negative sleeve.
