The Way We Worked:   Photographs from the National Archivesman with headphones
Work and the workplace went through enormous changes between the mid 19th century, when 60 percent of Americans made their living as farmers, and the late 20th century, with its shift from an industrial to a knowledge-based economy. "The Way We Worked" reveals the effects of industrialization, urbanization, immigration, labor unrest, wars, and economic depression on ordinary working Americans, whether they toiled in a coal mine, on a tractor, at a typewriter, or on an assembly line.
