A poster comes to life. The middle man in the poster looks at his image mounted on a wall at Allegheny-Ludlum Steel Corporation, wonders what the other two fellows are like, and where they are these days. George Woolslayer, thirty-two-year-old welder, was chosen as a model for this poster when an Office of War Information photographer visited the plant in the fall of 1941. His interest in the soldier and sailor prompted him to write OWI (Office of War Information) asking for information on the servicemen. Result: furloughs wer obtained for the two, who came to the steel mill and saw that “Men Working Together” is the formula by which American soldiers, sailors and workers will win this war.
