These porcelain spirals are part of the works of a power transformer; transformers are essential to war production industries, and this employee of a large Eastern electrical company, working in the bushing section, is contributing essentially to Uncle Sam's war effort. Bushings are the tubes which hold the copper leads through which power flows both in and out of giant transformers. Westinghouse, Sharon, Pennsylvania
