A friend of Archivast sourced the material for this frame - it's zinc-wrapped wood moulding made in the USA in the 50s or 60s.  It's a beautiful material that would work well in a home office, library or a modern kitchen.  Photographed in 1942 when many young men were away fighting on the front lines, World War II offered new opportunities for women on the home front. The necessities of factory work and limitations of rationing created practical fashions inspired by “Rosie the Riveter” embodied by women leaving their first day of work at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
