Inside a wooden shed filled with workbenches. There are three or four women grouped around each bench. The women are mainly wearing dark overall-dresses. They are holding saws and have all paused to look at the camera.

The scale of the loss of life encountered in this war, due to the introduction of mechanised weapons, was completely unexpected. As a result, women were called upon to fulfil traditionally male roles.

Ambulance drivers preparing to meet an incoming train, France, during World War I. There is a row of ambulances parked facing away from the camera, along the back of the photograph. They are canvas-covered trucks with crosses painted on them and a vent opening at the back. They are fenced in by tall trees. There are seven women running, fanned-out, across the muddy open ground in front. They are wearing long, heavy coats and leather helmets. Driving an ambulance, along with nursing, was one of the few callings which allowed women to participate in the war near the front line.
