Last week’s Remember When mystery photo showed eight women forklift drivers in the warehouse of the H.J. Heinz Co. factory. It is believed the photo was taken in the late 1940s, soon after the factory went into production in 1946. There were no responses to identify the women or where they worked. Photo provided by Jesse Rodriguez.
