    they are posing because this particular photographer liked to carry a lot of lighting and studio gear with him on the road and the time needed to setup the shot, clean the set, pose the people, calculate the lighting, setup the 4x5 camera wouldn't allow the models to be totally spontaneous.

    the studio lighting, attention to detail, and the use of kodachrome is also why the photos look fantastic.

    . I am proud of the women who went and worked hard for there country in the 2nd world war. I am a AME, though women are supposed to be equal in the work placetoday this has not been my experience in Canada. I have worked in other countries for example South Africa were women are uplifted and appreciated for there hard work. I decided to move to Canada but have only received hatred and sexism and right out rude behaviour from men and I am not the only one.

    Your looking at the quintessential “Rosie The Riveter”. God bless the American female, they put them in the air during the war.
