Caption: Welding area of a car factory during the First World War. Women working in the welding department of the Lincoln Motor Company factory in Detroit, Michigan, USA, between 1914 and 1918. This US Army Signal Corps photograph was taken during the First World War. Constant production was needed to meet demand, and women entered the workforce in large numbers to replace the men who had entered the army to fight. The USA fought in World War I from April 1917 up to the end of the war in November 1918.
