Maintenance Mechanic

We are wrapping up Working Man week with this picture of a maintenance mechanic. The picture was taken in 1942 at the Combustion Engineering Company of Chattanooga, Tennessee. I have enjoyed this series of pictures. Hope you will drop in tomorrow morning for the Mystery Person contest. I have a good one lined up.
