Baltimore, Md. The 'work' cards, by means of which constant check is kept on what is being done with each block of social security account applications, are punched in the Production and Control Section. Each hole in each 'work' or operation card represents a letter or a numeral. When translated, these give necessary pertinent data for the daily and permanent work records of the Social Security Board Records Office in Baltimore, Maryland. The photograph above shows a worker in the Production and Control Section of the Records Office punching 'work' on operation cards

Baltimore, MD. To facilitate handling of the individual master card, it is necessary that the identifying information represented by the holes which have ben punched in the card, shall be easily read by the human eye. From the gang punch machine, therefore the master card is taken to an interpreting machine. The interpreting machine translates the holes back into letters and figures and prints the name of the holder of the account number and some other identifying data across the top of the master card going through the interpreting machine in the Social Security Board Records Office

There is nothing "hit or miss" about the handling of account applications in the Social Security Board Records Office. To facilitate keeping a constant check on each, applications are grouped in blocks of 1,000, numbered in sequence, before they are started through the various operations necessary to set up an individual ledger account for every worker. The photograph above shows workers in the Records Office assembling applications in to blocks of 1,000.

The millions of applications for social security account numbers are handled in orderly manner in the Social Security Board Records Office. After the hour and date, and the number of each application has been recorded, as it is received, applications are sent to 'holding files.' Here they are held until they have been grouped into blocks of 1,000 with numbers running in sequence--for example, from 001-01-1000 to 001-01-1999. The photograph above shows workers in the Baltimore Records Office at work on the 'holding files'
