I love not only the snapshot of the office at work and the technology these ladies are using, but little details like the full hat and coat racks and open windows with fans blasting in late November!  Let’s not even bring up how much “computing” has changed in the past 90 years…

November 24, 1924. Washington, D.C. “Computing Division, soldiers’ bonus.” Clerks at the “Bonus Bureau” calculating benefits for World War I veterans. National Photo Company Collection glass negative.
