This is one of my favorite series of photographs posted on Shorpy. And thanks for the link to the WPA painting. My mother-in-law was a plucky young woman like the ones pictured here who helped the war effort and got to travel and experience some personal independence.

"Mirror Pool" by Vincent Canade

I did an image search on the painting and found that it was created by Vincent Canade in the 1930s, while he was in WPA's Federal Art Project. Here's the reference: http://nddaily.blogspot.com/2016/04/new-deal-art-mirror-pool.html
