Finding Our Ancestors, and Sharing Their Stories

Photo Friday: Ernie Finlay’s Old School Tech Toys

As I shared in this week’s #FamilyStoryMinute , my husband’s grandfather, George Ernest Finlay, worked in the tech sector in Chicago from the 1930s until the 1970s. (The apple does not fall from the tree, as my husband and his father both had technical careers as well.) We are so fortunate to have some photos of Ernie at his lab and also setting up test equipment out at his farm. In fact, we enjoy these photos so much that we enlarged and framed the lab photos for my husband to display at his office, and they have garnered many enthusiastic comments.
