It’s #TBT Throwback Thursday and #NationalSandwichDay! In May 1943, women workers enjoyed their lunch break in the women’s locker room at the yards of the #Pennsylvania #Railroad. Left to right: Bertha Carlotta, twenty-nine, a machinist testing axles; Anna Plecenik, twenty-four, a machinist’s helper, working a drill press; Mary Stefanski, thirty-seven, a blacksmith’s helper; Cecelia Wadkowski, thirty-five, a machinist operating a turret lathe; and Susan Topolosky, thirty-two, a machinist’s helper operating a radial dial press.
