Rosie the Riveter: one of many finds in that LoC Flickr set

BB reader Hagrid says, "I just blogged this stunning 1943 colour photo, released by the Library of Congress on Flickr. It turns that WWII icon, 'Rosie the Riveter,' on her head, by presenting her as she really was: African-American. Love the nails and ring, incidentally."

(Editor's note: there were surely many shades of "Rosie," but that diversity is often overlooked.)
