    El enfoque de esta fotografía me recuerda a algunos de los cuadros de Mauritz Escher. Secuencia, sumatoria, sensación de infinito.

    This Photo is Great and everything in the Photo relates to times way back then. Your square's around certain things are trying to have humor, but back then in time this was the way it was. And America was Proud of the Women who worked for the War Department. Everything about this old Historic Photo is Great.
