“"This 1920s version of Betsy Ross is up to her neck in stars and stripes as she works on a U.S. flag for the Army,” reported @nytimes in 1927. “She is one of the many workers at a #Philadelphia facility that supplies all #flags to the government.” This photo was published in the Mid-Week Pictorial in 1927. @nytimes published the photo periodical, which was sold separately from the newspaper, from 1914 to 1936. We found the #tbt photo in our newsroom archives, known as “the morgue.” #🇺🇸" By nytimes on Instagram.
