And it is time again for Story Core. This traveling oral history project is recoding the stories of everyday Americans. And today we have memories of a real life--“Rosie the Riveter”.

Dorothy Kelley helped to build ships in May during War World Ⅱ, a divorced poster to seek work at this South Portland Shipyards. She was raising 4 children on her own. Dorothy Kelley's daughter Jones Palter visits its Jury core to remember her mom’s struggle to keep the family together.

After the divorce, there wasn't much money. So my mother walked in the laundry in different places. And she finally got the job in Margaunmary wares1, department store. And these young women would come in, all dressed in these big boos and these kind of rough overalls2 and they would have checks of $600 to cash. And she finally asked one of them where did you work that you make so much money. And they said in the Shipyard. So my mother went over, and the man who interviewed her said, did she wanna be a welder3 or a burner? And my mother said which pays the most? And he said the welder. And she said that is what I wanna do. He said Oh versanary, ha, and she said no I have four children to take care.

It was bitter cold in the winter going into the bottom of those steel ships. They had to wiggled into nearly cross basis and lay on their backs, and well overheat. And I remember her neck and her chest here all spotted4 with burn marks from the sparks. And her shift was midnight to 6AM, so she can be home with us during the day. I remember her dressing5 and not heavy clothing, man's clothing. Once she fell and hurt her ankle and they brought her home in the middle of the night, and she was weeping. I remember that. After to the Shipyard closed, she needed to have 2 jobs to make enough money. And we kids were more or less on our own, and that was not a happy time. But still she was determined6 to keep us together as a family.

Jones Palter talking about her mother Dorothy Kelley at the Story Core in Portland Main.
