PETROLETTES IN HISTORY: Real Rosie Riveters

According to the Labor Dept, if you've sewed on buttons, or made buttonholes on a machine, you can learn to do spot welding on airplane parts. If you've done fine embroidery, or made jewelry, you can learn to do assembly on time fuses, radio tubes. If you've used an electric mixer in your kitchen, you can learn to run a drill press. If you've ironed your sheets in an electric mangle, you can learn to run a blueprint machine.

CAREERS: Alana Baratto

Alana is a marketing executive for Aprilia and Moto Guzzi here in Australia. I got the chance to meet her at the Sydney launch of Moto Guzzi's El Dorado and was instantly impressed with her clear passion for the industry which, after chatting more, is rooted in a long love affair fostered by her upbringing.

AMY SHORE: Through Her Eyes

Amy Shore is a professional photographer whose clients include Classic Driver, Goodwood and Iron & Air to name a few. Her Instagram account and blog are full of images of vintage cars, planes and motorcycles shot with compositions worthy of iconic status. Amy clearly loves what she does and her enthusiasm permeates her work, so I was lucky enough to grab her for a moment in her busy schedule to ask her a few questions.
