A young worker takes a break from packaging a mountain of oranges.
A young worker on a farm in Israel takes a break from packaging oranges to pose for the camera in 1944.
Her headscarf would look at home on a wealthy American woman driving around town in a convertible during that era, but this particular worker is probably using it to protect herself from the sun.
Her clothes, while fashionable, seem much more intended for practicality than style; we'd be pretty surprised if she were wearing high heels. It kind of puts a new spin on the idea of vintage fashion.
