During WWII, while the men were away fighting, the women stepped in to fill their jobs and keep America running. It took place in every corner of the nation, even in Eatonville.
Here are two shots of “lumberjills” — women who worked at the Eatonville Lumber Company in the 1940s.
The three mill workers in the first shot are Eva Tappero, Ruth Logston and Yolonda Marianni. I’m not sure who the women are in the second shot, but if you know, please let me know.
