In 1961, I was 15 and I remember that people were actually shot trying to get from East to west, it was a really terrible thing to have happened, separating families like that.

No pictures of the; school kids hiding under desks or in the halls for nuclear bomb air raid drills in 50's? Banks of switch board operators Horse drawn wagons, plows etc. Much more needed to show how technology has revamped how we worked in the last half of the 20th century
