This is my new favourite photo - a real-life Rosie the Riveter, photographed in February 1943.



She looks so cool. And the photo looks like it was taken yesterday. It's from this fantastic collection of colour photographs from the '30s and '40s.

Wow. That picture is really good quality, considering it was taken in the 1940s.

I love the photos from that exhibition - I first saw it awhile back. It is simply amazing how color can bring an historic photo to life. The exhibition is going to be at my hometown art museum in early 2007 - I am really looking forward to seeing it when I visit my Mom and Dad.

And to top it all, she's black! (Well, clearly at least part!)

What a fantastic picture - and what a wonderful image as well.

Awww, fantastic! I could look at that site forever. Well, not quite forever, but you know. For the rest of the working day easily!
