Description:Outdoor movie amphitheater at the Ravenna, Ohio Ordnance Plant. The Ravenna Ordnance Plant manufactured ordnance for the military during World War II. The photograph was made during the industrial hygiene and engineering activities conducted by U.S. Public Health Service personnel at the plant in September 1943. Their concerns included preventing dermatitis among the workers and reducing the risk of explosions in the plant. Men and women from all over the U.S. came to Ravenna to work at the plant, changing the social milieu of the town and surrounding area. Original caption of this photograph: “The outdoor movie amphitheater, part of the ordnance plant’s recreational facilities.”
The NIOSH Historic Photo Collection began as the “picture file” of the Industrial Hygiene Division of the U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS), c. 1930-1960. It is a unique collection of mid-20th Century images of American workers and workplaces and documents occupational safety and health research of that era. The collection consists of approximately 1,000 original photographs and schematic drawings.
