Simon Gonopolskiy and colleagues

This is me in a shop at a plant. The photo was taken in Odessa in 1964. Upon graduation from Odessa Polytechnic Institute I was promoted to the engineer's position at the design office. Later I became head of the design department that designed accessories for machine units. I was awarded two medals at VDNH [All-Union Exhibitions of Achievements of Public Economy] for my accomplishments. I'm very proud of these awards. Later I became deputy chief engineer for export operations and sometimes I traveled abroad.
