September 1942. "Automobile salvage. Automobile bodies are usually cut into four pieces so they can be readily loaded into a press for baling. The acetylene torch separates the lightweight body from the heavyweight steel frame of the car. Note: the auto has already been burned to remove all wooden parts, upholstery, oil, grease and other unusable and inflammable material." 4x5 nitrate negative by William Perlitch for the Office of War Information.
