This girl in a glass house is putting finishing touches on the bombardier nose section of a B-17F navy bomber, Long Beach, Calif. She’s one of many capable women workers in the Douglas Aircraft Company plant.

This picture was taken in 1942.

The LOC has uploaded tons of pictures (at least 3000) and they are pretty cool to look at.  Well done.
