Photograph showing an unidentified man standing on a platform and addressing a crowd of workers, probably about absenteeism, at the Albina Engine & Machine Works shipyard in Portland. Propped against the microphone stand is a partially visible poster that depicts a U.S. Marine with one fist raised and bears the words: “And if our lines should form and break, / Because of things you failed to make — The extra tank or ship or plane / For which we waited all in vain, / And the supplies that never came / Will you then come and take the blame? / For we, not you, will pay the cost / Of battles you, not we, have lost.” The poster is shown in full in image No. 375A0635. Also see image Nos. 375A0680 and 375A0683. Image note: The number 206 is written on the negative and is visible in the lower right corner of the image. The note “Albina shipbuilding” is written on the negative sleeve.
