Newsflash: I blogged about the mosaic by Susan Hertel in Redondo Beach in a previous post. Now I can announce that it's going to be repaired and restored by Wells Fargo--just because I asked! Woo-hoo! Read the story on Patch, here.
Which has nothing to do with the lovely Kodachrome photo at left, taken by Alfred Palmer of the Office of War Information in October 1942. The shot of a woman working at the Douglas Aircraft Plant in Long Beach was reproduced on Shorpy.com.
