  • Description

    Women war workers' parade. Glasgow, Scotland.

    World War One. Parade of women war workers in Glasgow; Scotland. Women from various groups walk down street; front diagonal shot. A float from a projectile factory with machinery and pipes with smoke coming out; decorated with Union Jacks. Women workers walk behind it carrying flags. A horse pulling a cart with an airplane. White horses pull an all white float with a big white globe; on top of it a woman rocking a cradle; and women in flowing white dresses sitting around the globe; on the side it says 'The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world'. Yeah; right. Home front; patriotism
