View of workers spraying paint on wing sections of bomber planes at Chrysler Corporation’s DeSoto Bomber Plant. Label on back: “Dive bomber wing sections given their battle paint. Completed center wing sections for a Navy dive bomber here get their battle paint in a spray booth which formerly treated auto body parts at a plant of DeSoto Division of the Chrysler Corporation. Workmen spray a newly developed ‘paint’ which combines a lack of glare with a resistance to salt spray. The wings, built on a power driven assembly line, are now ready for shipment to a assembly point. From Ruthrauff & Ryan, Inc., 7430 Second Blvd., Detroit, Michigan.”
