Scope and content

Photograph showing two unidentified young women sitting on a table. Between them is a large bottle for collecting keys as scrap metal. The person on the left is holding a key over the mouth of the bottle. On the jar is a sign that reads: “ANY OLD KEYS? / The Navy Wants Nickel Silver / 80% of all Old Flat Keys are Nickle [sic] Silver. / Brass and other Metals are also desired. / PROCEEDS TO THE ARMED SERVICES.” Hanging on the wall behind them is a poster depicting a bomb, a tank, a battleship, and an anti-aircraft gun. The poster reads: “A 2000-lb. Aerial Bomb uses 600 pounds of scrap metals / A Medium Tank uses 15 tons of scrap metals / A 35,000-ton Battleship uses 20,000 tons of scrap metals / A 3-inch Anti-aircraft Gun uses 3 tons of scrap metals / GET IN THE SCRAP.” Image note: The number 2619 is written on the negative and is visible in the upper left corner of the image.
