my father startd working there before the war. when he returnd he went back to GI working from late 1945 until 1979. when I was 6 I joind Dad in a picket line in front of the entrance.
Mom calld tonite to inform me that a fire destroyd the vacant buildings of the former business. I last went past that spot just 2 weeks ago.
& it feels particularly strange to me that this happend in the month in which Dad wd've turnd 90. on that birthday I'm doing a piece in his memory which will involve the hundreds of General Industries pay stubs Dad kept for years in a can in the attic.
