Boston & Maine Help Wanted Ad 6/25/17

This ad was in the June 25, 1917 Boston Globe newspaper.  The B&M Railroad was looking for "women car cleaners".  No doubt with the U.S. entering WWI in April, the railroad knew there could be a manpower shortage, hence the ad looking for females.  

OR, perhaps, the job was always done by women?  I am curious now!
