Photograph of two women from the Old Hickory Powder Plant Box Factory dressed in their work uniforms, called "womanalls." One of the women is seated on a box, presumably made at the factory. In the accompanying article published in the Old Hickory News, the women's foreman describes the women as "doing a man's work at a man's pay and doing it better than a man can do."
