World War II Women in Color


Check out these rare photos of World War II that were originally taken in color.  Color film existed at least since 1939 with The Wizard of Oz, but was still pretty rare because the technology was too new.

But the most striking thing in the photos is that a lot of them feature women.  Women did a lot of jobs during the war, including aircraft spotters, preparing parachutes, and creating munitions.

Foot update:  I’m out of the boot and wearing structured shoes (hiking boots).  But I can only walk short distances.  It’s so pretty and nice outside and the flowers are blooming and I still can’t have a walk to enjoy them!

Soon …
