WPA Workers Make Improvements to Charleston Navy Yard | History of SC Slide Collection

The WPA undertook large, as well as small, construction projects, and the character of some of their projects began to change in 1939 and 1940, as the nation turned its attention to the war that had begun in Europe. These WPA workers are completing improvements to the Charleston Navy Yard in 1940.
