"In fact, it blew up once, that building did. And not on that line I went down but on one of the lines. And you had to go upstairs, and there was a big kettle there that you could walk around and see the stuff that they put in the bombs that went bloop-bloop-bloop. You can't imagine, it was – The kettle was probably a whole story high. And then you were up above that looking at that… There was a lady that come over and picked up parts for all the lines. She drove a pick-up and she was parked there. And she got killed when it blew up on the line that she was on."
