Making models of merchant ships and warships, for use by designers to test new patterns of "dazzle" painting or other camouflage. The worker at left is cutting out model parts on a jigsaw, while the man in the center is filing parts to shape. The woman at right is assembling a model ship.
Note the chart in the right background, with silhouettes of various types of merchant ships.
