This was the first time I've seen the Rosies out in completely clean garb. Normally, their clothing is pre-treated with cinders, soot and grease, as is their make-up. I actually saw Pete rolling their clothing on the floor of the Strasburg Rail Road Shop on one occasion. Plenty of grease and oil there.

I noticed the squeaky clean "look" when I was editing the only Rosie shot that I I wrote my caption accordingly....because yeah, the ladies looked too clean to be "taking a break" in the middle of a work day:
