Kevin Price of Altoona submitted this photo of his great-aunt, Grace (Dixon) Gallagher (left), working with two other women in a munitions plant in Baltimore during World War II. Grace was born in Frugality and moved to Altoona in the 1950s to be near her sister, Mabel (Dixon) Galanick. She lived at least the last 20 years of her life in Altoona.
