A female war worker poses with the airplane she is helping build. The photographer's caption reads: "Rosie the Riverter was a popular song during WWII. She really did work on the planes and other high priority items. Women who had never worked at any job,or any job like this, became anxious to help their husbands, brothers and sons get home sooner." She is a resident at Rodger Young Village.
