Office Staff: Circa 1934-35
Nicely composed photo of eight Collins Radio Co. office workers - notice the immaculately clean desks.
This editor is guessing that we are on the ground floor of the southeast ell of the Metropolitan Building. The morning (10:30) sun is shinning into the windows at the far (south) end of the room.
We see a lot of short-sleeved blouses - it must be Summer.
Left to Right: Katherine Horsfall, Frances Power, Park Rinard, Irene Snyder, Faye Dunn, Betty Davis, Lucille Dotson, and Marjorie James.

The scene here at the Collins Radio Co. was recorded sometime in July 1934. The calendar at the right shows Sunday on the 1st of the month and the gal (Katherine Horsfall) at the lower left has a July 9, 1934 issue of Time Magazine on her desk.
