California shipyard workers. Thousands of workers bound for the Richmond shipyards in San Francisco's East bay area leave the ferry and cross the ramp leading to the yards, February 1943
 Conversion. Pianos to airplane motors. Prior to the conversion of a Chicago piano factory to the manufacture of parts for trainer planes, Lorraine Avezzano operated this boring machine to prepare piano keyboards for further assembly. Today she uses the same machine to process connecting rods for trainer-plane motors. More than 1,000 of these rods pass through her hands each day. Gulbransen Company. July 1942
 Handicapped workers. Despite physical handicaps, these women are doing work that's vital to Uncle Sam's war effort. At the Maryland League for Crippled Children, they're hand-burring Y's for airplane engines, on subcontract to a Baltimore engineering company. White Engineering Company, Baltimore, Maryland. August 1942
 Mrs. Evelyn Hauser, Red Cross nurse, prepares a volunteer blood donor at San Quentin for his donation. During the Red Cross mobile unit's visit to the penitentiary, 150 prisoners gave blood and more than twice that number volunteered but were unable to give to the bank because of lack of time and equipment. ca. 1943
 Coffee and cakes taste pretty good to these San Quentin prisoners who have just given blood to the Red Cross mobile unit. Of the hundreds of men who volunteered to give blood to the bank, 150 were taken care of during the unit's four-hour visit to the penitentiary. Warden Clinton T. Duffy, who encourages such activities at the prison, chats with several Red Cross workers. ca. 1943
Women in war. Agricultural workers. With the nation's manpower swelling the ranks of the armed forces, women must step into many new occupations in both urban and rural life. These women harvest hands in Rochelle, Illinois, are helping the national welfare by picking the summer asparagus crop. September 1942
