Stars & Stripes: 1942

Stars & Stripes: 1942

May 1942. "Philadelphia Quartermaster Corps. The tradition of Betsy Ross is being kept alive in this Quartermaster Corps depot, where a young woman worker assists in the creation of American flags for military activities." Happy Flag Day from Shorpy! 4x5 inch acetate negative by Howard Liberman for the Office of War Information. View full size.


Beautiful, indeed

I know I'm echoing others here, but do add this winsome lady to your beautiful girl section. She's just so pretty.

Really good choice

I thoroughly agree with damspot: great photo. I scroll from the bottom up, and I thought right away, seeing the texture of the flag and the sewn-on stars, Wow, those American flags are like quilts. Then I saw beautiful hands, a wedding ring, polished nails. Lovely, indeed. Then a really good looking young lady. At the end of the week, on a Shorpy break at work, what a gift.

Good choice

This photo is the best this week. A reminder, post Memorial Day, of all those people who made this flag so great. And, a lovely young lady in the bargain. Thank you Shorpy!
My flag flies often, and I hope others will join, at least for this day. Thanks again.
