WOMEN AT WORK DURING THE FIRST WORLD WAR

object description: Three women glass workers pack a "government order for 1 million lamp bulbs" at a warehouse somewhere in Britain. Two of the women crouch down to pack boxes, whilst a third is framed in the doorway as she enters the warehouse, carrying a box full of light bulbs. The ground is lined with straw to prevent breakages.
