Production Assembly line overflow

Stepped-up production of war housing trailers caused an assembly line to overflow into a plant yard at both ends.

View of the spill-over assembly line of Western Trailer Company at Los Angeles.

Chassis seen here have been much simplified over former types, using a minimum of steel. Wood stringers replace metal formerly employed. The trailer in the background has sides in place and is now ready to hit the inside assembly line.

April 1942
