There's something about these photos of this unknown woman doing her job in 1937 that really captured my attention. Can you imagine working a job like this?
Her work is fairly simple:
1. Take the silk out of the box.
2. Give the silk a bath in really hot water.
3. Take the silk out of the bath and place it in a machine called the "whizzer."
4. Take it out of the machine and hang it to dry.
5. Load the silk onto a bigger machine called the "winding machine."
It could be kind of fun to work in a factory and actually spend your work day making something.
I wonder if the workers were able to switch jobs every once in the while, just to keep it exciting.
