Scope and content

Photograph showing an unidentified man on a stage. He appears to be singing or speaking. A second unidentified man is sitting at a piano behind him. The number 16 is written on the negative and is visible in the lower right corner of the image. The unverified note “Albina shipbuilding / Swing shift / Playhouse Theatre / 1/16/43” is written on the negative sleeve. The photograph was probably taken at a vaudeville show performed by workers from Albina Engine & Machine Works and Commercial Iron Works in Portland. A short preview of the show was published on Page 4, Section 2, of the Oregon Journal on Friday, January 15, 1943: “SHIPYARD SHOW–Even the national War Labor board has set its seal of approval on the Albina-Commercial swing shift show slated for 1:30 a.m. Saturday at the Playhouse. Besides a sneak preview and ‘This is Blitz,’ or what Hitler does to conquered countries, the workers will give their own 10-act vaudeville, featuring Clinton English, Albina magician, and Helene Landsvert, Commercial dancer.” See related image Nos. 375A0462, 375A0463, 375A0464, 375A0465, 375A0466, 375A0467, 375A0468, 375A0469, 375A0470, 375A0471, 375A0473, and 375A0474.
