A woman of the Women's Royal Naval Service looks on as shoes are hot blasted at a shoe factory, somewhere in the Midlands. The shoes have been cleaned, and after the blasting, which, according to the original caption, is a process "rather like ironing the shoes", will be ready for dispatch to Admiralty depots around the country.
