Women working at the Eatonville Lumber Co — WWII

Rosie the Riveter has nothing on the Eatonville women. During WWII they went to work at the Eatonville Lumber Mill. This picture shows just how many filled the vacant spots left by the men fighting overseas. And judging by the stacks of lumber behind them ready for sale, they did a pretty good job.
