Sophie commented: I had to chase down that photo to find out WHAT she was sewing . . . harnesses for parachutes (in case anyone else is curious). The photos are fantastic. Thank you for telling us about them.

I apologize -- I previewed the post, and the flickr info appeared. I forgot that it would disappear in the final version! There were other parachute-related photos, but this one (so far, at least) is the only one that accurately returned a sewing machine when I searched the LOC collections for "Singer."

So, thanks to Sophie for the clarification, and to the rest for your patience!
