Scope and content

Photograph showing an unidentified worker balancing on a sawhorse next to a pair of large metal cylinders at the Albina Engine & Machine Works shipyard in Portland. Wrapped around the top of each cylinder is a belt that appears to consist of strips of wood affixed to fabric. The worker is facing to the left and holding a pair of pliers in one hand. With the other hand, he appears to be adjusting a piece of wire holding the belt on the cylinder. The text “13X” is written on the negative and is visible in the lower left corner of the photograph. Image note: Information based on the following unverified note written on the negative sleeve: “Albina shipbuilding / Sub chaser / 11/25/44.”
