"Hiring call in old laborers’ hall in basement of King’s Kup restaurant, Noble Street, Fairbanks. The young woman in the photo is Debbie Reed: "My first job on the pipeline was Jan 10th, 1975 at Franklin Bluffs on the night crew laying down the first blue board styrofoam beneath the pad. It was -60 and guys were laying on the insulation until it was covered with dirt by the dozers. There were 500 men and 8 women in that camp. When I got there the superintendents had a bet regarding what a girl laborer would look like….they had never heard of one before! Neither had I!"–Debbie Reed, February, 2013."
