    I found the book, "The Girls of Atomic City" by Denise Kiernan, to be an excellent read. Your wives / girl friends will probably like it too ! See attached scan of the cover.

    Good pic Lathefan the bar feeders set me thinking.

    I wonder ;- How many PMer's can close their eyes and hear the bars rattling in the feed tubes ?

    No wonder we'd be a bit ratty at the end of a shift

    I wonder if
    #1. The ladies wore the caps to keep their hair up and out of the moving stuff. Or to keep the oil from the lineshaft bearings out of it?
    #2. Were the drip pans maintained and drained better for the ladies working environment?

    " ...if she's 18 in the photos...she's going on 90 now...she could have grand children that are 50..."

    It's easy to forget just how long ago WWII was now. I am astonished to think my 1990 300ZX, which I don't think of as old all, will next year be as relatively old as a 1957 Chevy was when I was in high school! We won't even discuss my 1972 truck.

    The lathe in the foreground in that Puget sound photo has no drive belt. Must have an
    electric motor in the base - the shop clearly is wired up.

    Also note the reject 'machinist hat' at the far right edge of the frame, on top of a
    cabinet....

    That looks to be a modern Gear head Monarch lathe, from the looks of the tailstock clamp, the compound and the saddle shape.

    That's a chucker running an aluminium casting, not all sure of the lathe - doesn't look right for a Ward and without other views it's hard to say, but if it was British I'd plumb for a Herbert.

    Fine Yorkshire lass doing what they do
