There really were a lot of ladies working in assembly, and many other roles. Many of the men were away fighting and the women stepped into the breach. As I recall, there were problems after the war when the men came home and said "we want out jobs back" -- a lot of the ladies were enjoying their new-found financial independence and didn't want to give it up...

I can't help noticing a lot of pictures of women assembly workers. Is it because the photographer thinks they were more photogenic, or there really is more women workers during that time?

You would need well over 30 Mpixels before you can come close to the resolution of silver based film. See Polaroid "large format" if you want high resolution, not DLSR's

Got to agree with you, I have good quality 35mm cameras and glass that work well, and medium format Mamiya body and lenses that are tack sharp high quality glass. Adapting a digital back to a camera body that was made to take different sized formats and backs would not have been difficult, and the digital sensors would take advantage of the quality construction and sharpness of the existing cameras.

Have you ever used a professional DSLR Like the Nikon D800? I guess not or you would see it differently

Have you ever read the science fiction story "A Fire Upon the Deep?" It's set way in the future at the edge of the galaxy, but it starts with people data mining old databases and stuff... I can imagine "archaeologists" from 1000 years in the future wrestling with old data bases trying to mine information out of them...

Good old floppies. At my last job I kept one in my desk, and every once in awhile if an engineer stopped by to discuss something and the conversation turned to data, I'd pull the 5-1/4" floppy out while trying to integrate it into the conversation as if it were a thumb usb drive. Always got a laugh. But good point--I've got a laptop and another pc a few feet away at home, and neither could read any kind of floppy. I wonder how much safer our data will be in the "cloud"?

@Paul - I don't think it's that unfair a comparison - digital has still not been able to achieve the quality of these pics in my opinion - so where is the progress? I've blown up a sharp 35mm Kodachrome 25 to a 16x20 inch Cibachrome print and it's still pin sharp. Ref digital backs - thanks for that - I am sure they would make them for things like Hasselblads, but do you know if anyone's done one for Olympus OM cameras? Expensive maybe, but compared to the cost of replacing all my lenses it probably would look good. I've thought about getting one of the better digital SLRs - Olympus or maybe Canon - and getting an adapter ring for my Olympus OM lenses - but money's too tight even for that at the moment.... :-(
