Rosie the Riveter (North Vietnamese edition)


Practical Archivist (Sally J.) sez, "As long as we're celebrating Rosie the Riveter in all her glorious variety, I'd like to add this North Vietnamese welder to the mix. According to the caption, she is a 'worker of the Electrical Motor Workshop in Hanoi.' This photo is from a collection of North Vietnamese propaganda housed at the University of Wisconsin. I worked on it when I was in library school nearly 15 years ago. Glad to discover it's still up, although it seems funny how few of the photos I was allowed to include." Link (Thanks, Sally!)
