Inscription.  Despite being dominated by black labor the industrial workplace was rigidly segregated until the 1960's. Men punched separate time clocks and bathed in separate bath houses. Following the implementation of desegregation laws in the 1960's the black bath house became a storage facility for both black and white workers.
