There are seven individuals visible in the photo working on making tents for the U.S. Army during World War II. Most of the people, including one child, are working with sections of rope. There are piles of the canvas tent material around.
The Wade Brown Furniture Company likely started in 1927 or 1928. The company was a furniture manufacturer, but also produced tents and other items for the U.S. Army during World War II. The company had three addresses through the years: 7 E.16th Street, 212 W. Main, and 1201 Central Avenue.
