1917 halftone print of a woman working side-by-side with a man to help construct wartime supplies at the Glasgow boiler factory
September 14, 2012
"Many thanks, the 1917 Rosie the Riveter print arrived safely yesterday. Thanks also for the particular attention given to packaging and the accompanying information. Best service I’ve ever had from an Ebay supplier.
As for use, well I’m trying to put together a book on UK Boilermakers. Rather than just reproduce photos/illustrations from their catalogues, of which I have quite a collection, I’ll use prints such as ‘Rosie’ to give the book some wider interest. I have a small collection of postcards of views inside factories, transportation and guys stocking boilers, so your contribution is much appreciated.
It was quite unexpected, and lucky, to get an illustration of a Glasgow boilermaker (probably William Wilson) from a US journal.
Thanks and Regards, Paul.”
