Production — Lacquering small parts
Trailers for war housing are built by mass production methods at the Los Angeles plant of the Western Trailer Company.
Workmen use spray guns to apply clear lacquer to hundreds of small parts before installation. The power exhaust in the background reduces fire and health hazards by drawing paint fumes away from the workers.
