First Published Apr 18 2014 10:47 am • Last Updated Apr 24 2014 11:53 am

Each Friday, The Salt Lake Tribune presents historic images in a special series called A Look Back. This week’s installment features photos that were shot in Salt Lake City by the Farm Security Administration in 1942. Specifically these photos highlight a group of women who were trained to drive buses and taxis in the city.

None of the people in the photos are named so if you happen to have any information about who any of these people are, please let us know by emailing photo@sltrib.com.
