World War II homefront images

The Office of War Information, created in the US during WWII, was an agency designed to aid in the war effort on the homefront.

Among other things, they employed civilians, especially women, to build items needed; these photos show B-52 bombers being constructed.

These particular images were taken by Alfred Palmer between 1940-43 from several plants in California and Texas.

We have gathered close to 20 images and put them into a PDF to use in your classroom.
