    I realize that these photos were taken pre-OSHA, but shouldn't these women be wearing boots in this industrial setting?

    It looks like this lady was more into fashion than actually worried about safety or dropping some heavy piece of metal on her feet. She is seen earlier in a closeup as well. Makes me wonder if she was an aspiring model or an actual model?

    She's gotta be a model - no one working long hours can look like this!

    Women took better care of themselves back then than they do today.

    It's hard to believe that this is not a studio set up.
