John R. Galloway

We have glimpsed this corner before at The Office: 1917. Note the turnbuckle stars and exceptionally fine signage next door. John R. Galloway (1852-1933) wired the first bell system in the Capitol to call members to vote. He also is reported to have worked for the White House, Union Station and the Corcoran Art Gallery. A charter member of the National Electrical Contractors Association, where he served as both treasurer and president.

Post Waste

By the stencils on the crates, it is apparent that the printers are reusing the containers that the papermakers shipped in. When our guys get done splintering the containers, they can be used for something smaller and the excess for firewood. I wonder if the crew is wearing Eskin vests.

Vested interest!

A vest maker? And I thought today was the time of specialization!

Maybe he just never could get the hang of making sleeves?
