Sepia Saturday


This week’s prompt sent me searching for nostalgic photos with mechanics. I was surprised that my Flickr Commons search yielded so many women fixing cars and planes.


National Library of Scotland 1918


University of British Columbia, 1914-18?

    I liked your take on this week’s prompt – great images of women mechanics.

    Good to see some women working on machines…though many women prefer having a man around who likes to do that. We women can be sexist too!

    That’s a really nice selection. I especially like the one of the woman fixing the prop. Have to wonder if she was a prop.
