Box, women in white dresses, factories - all possible ideas to build on from this week's theme photo for Sepia Saturday. I've looked at my own photos and came up with nothing, so I've gone to The Commons and come up with a couple of photos I think are relevant.
The first is a lady in a white coat, working indoors (but not in a factory). The second is of one of the army of women who worked in factories during WW2 (many of whom had to give up their jobs to returning servicemen after the war).
