At Work, in 1974

Linked from the Facebook group CFB Rivers Manitoba - Little Base on the Prairies 2011, the Memoriam Album. Captioned: "This is a picture of Valerie McIntosh working at Sekine in 1974..."

A few notes of interest from this photo. Sekine Canada's production process used conveyors to move the frames around as they were assembled into complete bikes, some of which is visible in the background. Valerie appears to be installing the rear wheel, but is not wearing uniform work clothes. Note the frame is a lower-end 5-speed mixte model, with stamped dropouts, steel wheels, mudguards, and cottered cranks. Also note the branding- SEKINE moderne font, modern seat tube decal, "Made in Canada" sticker, and the spoke protector.

Post 'em if you got 'em.
