This home movie from the Click family captures scenes of workers in San Antonio in factories and warehouses, driving trucks, taking smoke breaks, and making sausage. Most scenes are of Swift Meatpack Plant where Amelia “Millie” Click Dunno worked in the 1940s. Women workers are included in these scenes, likely due to wartime labor shortage. Scenes from the coast and at Fort Sam Houston are followed by the Click family at home in their yard.
