An engine-block "pour" in the foundry at Delaval Engine and Compressor Division in Oakland, California. Photo circa 1970. From 1976 to 1978 I was the Machine Shop, Assembly Bay, and Foundry tool crib manager. As a union member, the income I earned from doing lots of double- and triple-overtime shift work allowed me to payoff my college loan and save toward a second trip through college.
