Description
Guarded by soldiers, workers are shown going through one of the gates of the strikebound North American Aviation plant. Officers of the United States Army, which now is in complete charge of the factory, said that a total of 5980 men, more than half the personnel, had reported back to their jobs on the day and night shifts. The United States Army took over the factory on orders of President Roosevelt, who said defense plane production must go on. Photo dated: June 10, 1941.
