Atikokan Ontario, photos from the 1950s.
Many thanks to
(Terry Phair) for these photos. He wrote me in part:
" . . . I went under my stepfather's name (Phair) all the time I was in school but when I joined the Air Force
I had to revert to my real last name (Martin). . . . I worked at M&C Motors for a year or so
after quitting grade 11 in 1959, then joined the Air Force. Stayed in for 28 years . . . . "
January 21, 2011 : Terry sent me another batch of photos. One is at the bottom of this page and
the other eleven are listed in the Steep Rock Iron Mines section.
Terry Phair as a teenager.
Terry Martin as an Air Force trainee in Borden 1962.
This is probably a clipping from the Atikokan Progress.
Names have been written on the clipping but for the sake of
word searches I'll repeat them here.
