Scrap Drive, c 1943

Students at St. Cecilia’s School in Greenpoint, Brooklyn hold a scrap drive to collect vital materials for the war effort during World War II.  With the help of Brother Principal, the young boys accumulated metal to be recycled and used in ammunition, bombs, tanks, guns and battleships as well as tin and rubber to be used for gas masks and life rafts.
