National Youth Administration, State Office, 1. S. 4th St., Columbus, Ohio
A black and white National Youth Administration photograph of two African American males preparing to weld two pieces of metal together. They are at the left of the image and are holding onto the two pieces at the seam. They are wearing coveralls and goggles. The machine to do the welding is at the right of the image. It is made by the Eisler Engineering Co., Inc, Newark, New Jersey. The machine is the "Spot and Butt Welders." On the back of the photograph is the stamp of the NYA. Mary McLeod Bethune was the Director of Negro Affairs for the NYA during the 1940s, and most likely acquired this image during her time as an NYA agent.
