200 Girls Checking In.

The Library of Congress has begun to make archival materials available on YouTube. That’s very exciting news for anyone who cares about, you know, history and junk like that. To get you started, here’s a film from 1904 of two hundred women checking in for work at the Westinghouse Electric & Manufacturing Co. in East Pittsburgh, PA. The film was made by the American Mutoscope & Biograph Co.
