This is an original 1941 halftone print of a 500 pound aerial bomb from A. O. Smith. The company pushed out 1,000 of the casings a day, where they were sent to be filled at government arsenals. The engineers came up with a way to weld and die-forge the shape of the casing from a single length of welded pipe which made the process go much faster and more smoothly.
