Back in the 70s, I had a job at Litton Industries. They made things for the Defense Department, along with other useful items, such as micro-waves, and calculators. My job there was to make wiring harnesses. These would go into airplanes or other government goods. I would get a blueprint/diagram of the harness to be made, choose the right wires, measure, cut, and strip the ends. Then I’d put them together as required in bundles, and in order, to make them fit the printed out diagram. At some point, I’d get to attach the wires to parts of the motherboard, and solder diodes and transistors to the board. It was fun to do all this, and didn’t seem complicated at all. The other workers were mostly women, and we’d sit at a long table while we worked, and we could talk about all kinds of things. The photos are very similar to what we did on this job.
Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️
