Title: [Photograph of shipyard employees leaving work, J.A. Jones Construction Company shipyard, Brunswick, Georgia, 1943-1945?]
Workers leaving after their shift at the shipyard
Date: 1943-1945
Description: Large group of workers exiting through the gates of the shipyards of the J.A. Jones Construction Company in Brunswick, Georgia. Each gateway entrance and queue seems to be organized by job type; the only legible gate sign, on the right side of the photograph, reads "Welders." A large placard hung over the gates with an illustration of Uncle Sam reads: "Fellow Presentee: This Is Your War" [the smaller text beneath the heading is illegible].

Original photograph scanned by the Brunswick-Glynn County Library. Described by the Digital Library of Georgia as a part of Georgia HomePLACE: an initiative of the Georgia Public Library Service and GALILEO.
