70 Years Ago!



b29_chrysler_assembly_plant770 short years ago, we set off the first nuclear bomb against humanity. Though it did save American lives, it was certainly the start of a different era for mankind.

Shown are some of the people (mostly women my dad told me) putting together the wiring for the B-29 Bomber. Dad was in charge of the electrical wiring that was done in Detroit. He would visit the assembly lines often.

Two things I remember him telling me about the electrical wiring. One was it was mostly women doing the work at Hudson Motors of which my dad was a chief engineer & two the wiring was connected by crimping much the same as is done today by most of us shade tree mechanics when we wire our car trailers or work on the electrical wiring of our cars, boats & recreational vehicles.

My computer experience and lifestyle is a reflection of my earlier career in medicine, as a practicing Medical Technologist at two prestigious Teaching Hospitals, the University of Florida Shand's Teaching Hospital and the dual universities of Indiana University and Purdue University in Indianapolis, affiliated with the Veteran's Administration Hospital.
