(a) French women work as engineers and firemen on French railroads. Photograph taken at a round-house station near Paris. The three women shown in the picture do the actual work of engineers and firemen. The widows of France are doing more than their share in the nation"s battle for victory. They fill all sorts of positions but are especially numerous on the railroad"s of the country, 7/21/1917. (b) Together they labor--shoulder to shoulder, women and men in British industries. Two types of boiler makers-the old and the new. As a rule boiler makers are not considered ladylike but this plucky woman has thrown tradition to the winds entering on a career in a boiler factory in Glasgow. Clad in working togs deserted by a huskier boiler maker when the call to the colors sent him to the front, she is shown in this picture as a Hydraulic riveter, assisted by a man. Numerous other arguments for votes for women are presented at this boiler factory in Glasgow where women are working as stokers, drillers, riveters and planers, 11/11/1916.
