Women at Work Exhibit Opens
The lives of Texas rural women from 1930 to 1960 are highlighted through photos, tools used to till and harvest gardens, kitchen utensils to can and preserve food, and machines to sew for family and the household.
Armstrong County Women endured the Depression and Dust Bowl. They worked in the home, on the farm, and in the factories to support the men and boys serving in World War II. The new generation of baby-boomers followed in the footsteps of their working mothers and grandmothers with renewed optimism through associations in home demonstration clubs and activities. They sewed; they gardened; they raised chickens; they beautified homes inside and out, they learned crafts and had social fun as working women of Armstrong County.
