Thursday Photo Caption Contest

Martha and Claire quickly realized they should have gone with the horse costume instead.

Who knew that legs emerging from a plane would inspired so many captions about lost earrings, carnivorous aircraft, and close quarter combat? We went straight to the top for this one, and asked Debra Steidel Wall, our newly named Deputy Archivist, to be our guest judge.

Congratulations to Towner B! Check your email for a code to use for a 15% discount to our eStore!

So what’s really happening here? The original caption reads: “Workmen at the Vega aircraft plant, Burbank, California. Two women employees working through the bombardier’s hatch., 08/1943” (ARC 520739)

Did you know that June is National Accordion Awareness Month? (Seriously.) We’ve found the perfect image to celebrate! Put your funniest caption in the comments below.
