WAVES Barracks


San Francisco during World War II was a military town. And while many were bunked at places like Treasure Island, for some WAVES the crush of military personnel meant they lived in the city, off base.

This is an aerial of the WAVES’ barracks at the Western Women’s Club in San Francisco, looking northeast.

The photo comes from the National Archives.
