I'd never seen these before; thought I'd share. This is just one of many compiled by Mike McPhate, publisher of the California Sun newsletter, which I can't recommend highly enough. I start every weekday morning with it - half of the time before I even check here. It's always interesting. Take a look, subscribe, and contribute if you can.
Great photos of people working in the defense industry... Local history is so crazy, these jobs help create a strong black middle class and in the Late 40's and 50's and the shut down on these industries help cause the events that lead to the Watts Riots and the urban donut hole (areas of poverty).
