This wonderful sculpture is here in Vancouver. It honors the more than 10,000 women who worked in the local the Kaiser shipyards during WWII. Can you imagine being a single mom, your husband at war, having to ration most of what your family needs and joining the workforce for the first time?
The unglamorous side is clearly pictured above. I am not sure who this woman is, but the picture was in a family album. The back of the picture states she was working at a shipyard in Alameda, Ca.
Regardless, the Rosie look is one of my favorite mom looks. Next to house dresses I could spend days in a good pair of overalls and my hair all up in a scarf.
