Attic Bride: 1942

Attic Bride: 1942

September 1942. "Manpower. Americans all. Husky, bright-eyed Joe Gore Jr. is a young American of Polish descent who is determined that Hitler shall be driven from Poland and kept from America's shores. Machining medium tank parts in a Midwest plant during most of the daylight hours leaves Joe in a quite weary state when evening rolls around. Joe's home shows vestiges of 'old country' influences, but his own personal attic sanctum is solid Americana. Note the Home Bride, and the rocker that any mountain home would welcome. Pressed Steel Can Co., Chicago." Photo by Ann Rosener, Office of War Information. View full size.

Pressed Steel

I believe the correct name is Pressed Steel Car Company, not Can Company.

[Correct. From this link: "In 1940, during World War II, Pressed Steel started to produce large quantities of M-4 armored tanks and allied war materials for the war effort... Pressed Steel Car Company received an award for their excellent job in producing tanks on September 10, 1942." -tterrace]
