Like many women of her generation, Lillian Boyd worked in a factory during World War II. Raised in Waltham, Mass., she could walk to the Waltham Watch Company, where she worked making radium watches for the troops. Lillian reminisces about what life was like during the Depression, going to chaperoned dances with soldiers stationed in Boston, and the camaraderie with her girlfriends. She expresses the frustration of many women who had to return to the kitchen once the war was over.
