Scope and content

Photograph showing three unidentified people, two women and a man, standing in a row outside the office at the Albina Engine & Machine Works shipyard in Portland. The woman at left is holding a copy of the Sunday Oregon Journal; the man is holding what appears to be a comics page; and the woman at right is holding a sign that reads “See ALBINA in PICTURES / FEATURES / STORIES / SUNDAY JOURNAL / Wrapped … Ready for Mailing. / Send at least 3 copies to our fighters!” Behind the three people are stacks of rolled newspapers on top of boxes of Camel cigarettes. The photograph was taken during a cigarette drive for United States forces serving in World War II. Image note: The number 99 is written on the negative and is visible in the lower right corner of the image. The text “Albina shipbuilding / Packing cigarettes for armed forces / 10/24/42” is written on the negative sleeve. The exact date is unverified. The Oregon Journal published three and a half pages of photographs depicting activities at the Albina shipyards in the Picture Parade section on Sunday, October 25, 1942.
