Looking Back to 1941: Hot for Factory Workers Too

From the August 17, 2016, MidWeek "DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."

1941, 75 Years Ago.

"On account of the high temperature here today the management of the Wurlitzer piano factory closed the plant at noon today.

"Employees were finding it difficult to continue with the regular operations on account of the high temperatures that could not b contained with forced ventilation."

I imagine forced ventilation would refer to fans all those years ago.
