Boy was that a surprise to see a photo of the welding class room in the Racine WI. Vocational School. The welding stations looked the same as they did when I was a student in the late 50's. The only difference that I can see is the gas and oxygen were supplied by a manifold pipe line instead of the individual tanks at each work station. When I went there the instructors name was Mr. Jack Decaster, he taught both welding and aircraft flying during WW2, he was a terrific instructor. Thanks for the memory's

Yeah, with the wide variety of locations listed I figured someone here would have some memories of these places.
