In the Shadow of History

My grandmother worked in the very same building
by Christopher D.

I work in the very same building that my grandmother worked in as a drafter on a number of experimental planes during World War II. Though 50 years have passed and the building is falling apart around the small section of labs that Lockheed Martin still leases, my Grandmother is still alive and can point out the section of windows to her drafting area and the balcony attached to Larry Bell’s office where she once ate lunch with Bell who occasionally invited a handful of employees for a summer barbeque.

“My grandmother’s very much alive here.”
