Recommended Posts

Naomi Parker Fraley was an American war worker during the Second World War. She worked worker on aircraft assembly She was photographed in 1942 using a machine tool at the Naval Air Station Alameda. The picture was published in the local press, including the Pittsburgh Press. The following year, the iconic propaganda poster of "We Can Do lt!" started appearing in factories to campaign for worker morale. It is now considered that Naomi Parker Fraley is the most ikely model (known as "Rosie the Riveter") for the "We Can Do lt!" poster. The subject of the poster has previously been assumed to be of Geraldine Hogg Doyle, and only in 2011 did Naomi Parker Fraley notice the mistake and corrected it. She passed away in 2018, at the age of 96.
