Work Hard, Play Hard

My grandmother, Bertha McCarthy, and two great aunts (Geraldine Hall and Avis Edlebrock) worked for Boeing back in 1953. They all worked in the blanket shop in Seattle. These photos depict the work they did, as well as some of the fun they had doing their job. The two articles came out of the Boeing News dated April 9, 1953.

All of her co-workers are shown in the one photo, and I'm sure there are many people out there who might see some of their relatives in there.

Articles from the Boeing News, 1953.
