Milwaukee in wartime

Someone has a case of the Mondays

In 1942, photographer Jack Delano snapped this image of employees of Western Fuel Commpany having lunch in their locker room at the firm's Seventeenth Street Coal Dock office. It's December 1942, and World War II has been going on for a year. Somehow one feels they are waiting for the photographer to leave so they can resume the poker game.
