Sewing plane wing fabric
Original Caption: "The ladies sewing circle has a grim meaning in De Land, Florida these days. Here's one of its daily sessions, sewing fabric on airplane wings they hope will be flying over Germany some day soon. Nearest the camera is Joyce Newsom, instructor in De Land's vocational school, giving lessons in the new art of sewing to two grandmothers. Left is Mrs. Gussie Ryals, who has an invalid husband and five grandchildren. Right is Mrs. Ruth Klug, whose husband fought through the first World War, who has two grandchildren, and a boy in a bombing squadron in Australia. Both grandmothers soon will take their places on the assembly line of an aircraft factory. Hollem, Howard R., photographer."
