Douglas Aircraft employees on roller skates, Santa Monica, 12 May 1943 

 During WW II, writer  Esther McCoy worked as a draftsman at Douglas Aircraft. At the Santa Monica facility, the drafting room was two city blocks long: blueprint girls on roller skates expedited plans, hot meals were served on site, and twelve thousand free Eskimo Pie ice creams were distributed at break time.
