Kodachrome...Those Nice Bright Colors

An homage to Kodachrome film, which is being retired after 74 years of production:

This picture, taken in Long Beach in October 1942, is from Shorpy. If you want to see the full-screen version in all its glorious detail, go there.

The caption reads:

"Women are trained as engine mechanics in thorough Douglas training methods. Douglas Aircraft Company, Long Beach, California."
