More NYT coverage / also Hispanics in Pittsburgh during World War II

I am a bit curious by the NYT which has yet another piece on Pittsburgh coming in Sunday's travel section: Footsteps Andrew Carnegie’s Pittsburgh, Where a Tycoon Made It Just to Give It Away.. by David Laskin. But hey, sort of like in politics, almost any exposure is good exposure.

But speaking of history...... In yesterday's post on The Latino Experience web site is an essay on Latino's in the US during World War II. There is a brief mention of Hispanics working at the Pittsburgh Heinz plants making gliders. There were severe shortages of skilled wood workers here during the war, shortages of all workers for that matter. Thus communities of workers were attacted here from near and far. Below is a picture of glider wings leaving the Heinz plywood factory during the war. And below that is a picture of a shop floor at Heinz during the war... it's hard to tell in the online resolution, but it is amazing how many women appear to be doing the actual work. For that picture, if you click on it, it should bring up a very high res version of the same.
