Patriot Spinners & Knitters: WW I Christmas Packages for the Troops, 1917

“The photograph of this American soldier was made ‘Somewhere in France’ where he now is fighting for America. It was cold and snowing that day when the boy was taking a brief nap during a rest interval, comfortable in warm helmet, gloves and other things made by Red Cross workers over here, one of whom is Mrs. Chris White. Her picture at her spinning wheel is shown.” Detroit Times (Detroit, Mich.), Dec. 25, 1917, p. 4.
