Industrial Labor

Today's image wage captured by Donna, my wife, at the mill. She made a double exposure in camera of a bin of spools and an unemployment notice from the State of Maryland that was posted at the factory. Way to go babe! I seem to recall that the notice was dated circa late 1940's? I thought this represents the relationship between industry and labor. When the factory closed, this was information those employees no doubt needed. The history of machines and people still hangs thick in the air every I enter this fascinating time capsule.
