I found an unused pack of business cards for Dad. Anaconda, Cincinnati, Ohio. Dad never transferred to the Cincinnati office.
He worked for Anaconda in St. Louis, transferred to Detroit, and again to Los Angeles. The family lived on Stanley Hills Drive in Hollywood in 1939 and during the Second World War. Not an easy time, but they liked the Southern California winters more than those in the Midwest.
Dad left Anaconda when they wanted to transfer him to Cincinnati. He took a job in San Diego with Pacific Wholesale Electric Company in 1945. I was born in San Diego rather than Ohio.
And that made all the difference? Who knows?
Great business card. In the 60’s, 70’s, I worked with a Pacific Bell engineer on University Street, San Diego. When we installed new equipment or built/rebuilt central offices he always dealt with Frank. They were good friends. Ahhh! Memories.
That’s a great story! Our lives would have been very different if the family had moved to Cincinnati.
