I spent 37 1/2 years of my life in this building. I started working there right out of high school 6/9/69 (how could I forget that date?) and retired at 55 a few years ago.

In 1977 I worked on the ground floor, which was elevated 3-4 feet above street level. The flood water was another 6 or 7 feet high inside our office, covering our new computers that were being used for a new system that went live on July 1, just three weeks earler.
