VINTAGE: Women and World War 2

Image Source

I got rather excited when Joe shared this photographs with me from yahoo yesterday - these gorgeous colour photos were produced by the US Office of War Information during WW2 and beautifully remember the all important role women played during the conflict. Taken during 1942 to 1943 by Howard Hollem and Alfred Palmer they were left to the Library of Congress in 1944. 

On a day were we remember our independence in the US, it's fitting to remember the importance women's work during the war that maintained that freedom, both in the US and in the wider world during this era. You can see the rest of the collection through yahoo here
