Riveting in penny loafers. FTW.

ha ha awesome. She's working and the guys are just standing there. Love how 40's ladies were so hard core and weren't afraid to get down and work hard while still looking so feminine and pretty

I worked on submarines, and apparently the tools haven't changed since 1942. The leering looks familiar, too. I don't imagine those loafers are steel-toe, though!
