ATIKOKAN ONTARIO and
STEEP ROCK IRON MINES

Steep Rock Iron Mines, Ontario, 1949

This feature was published in the Life Magazine edition of October 24, 1949, pages 89 to 94. There is no author's name and no credit is given for the photographer. I haven't transcribed the text as I don't want to run into copyright problems, but the scans used here should be large enough for you to read the text on your screen.

One omisson made by this article is that although Atikokan is mentioned in passing, readers were given the impression that the new town being developed was at Steep Rock.

Please note the family shown at the bottom left on page 92. Can anyone identify them?
