Working as a Machinist, Maine

Lewiston, Maine

Story Narrative:

Talk about a memorable job you or someone in your family has had.

"My father came from Lincoln, Maine, at the age of about 23 without a job. My grandfather was working at the Androscoggin Mill and dad's new job was in the Hill, in the machine shop, but he didn't know anything about being a machinist. So, every night, he'd come home and sit my grandfather down and ask him to tell him how to do the job he was supposed to do the next day. He eventually worked at the Hill Mill for almost 40 years until it closed and became a Foreman in the Mill."
