Flin Flon before the '50s. Flin Flon is Hockey. People 'n Snaps. This website will feature pictures from then and perhaps the odd story which may rekindle memories of a time when life was simpler, a time before TV, when the Winnipeg Free Press meetup over 50 in flin flon saskatchewan Winnipeg Tribune arrived a day later!
The purpose of this website is share photos and perhaps stories of a town with the most unlikely name, and peopled with characters worth remembering. Contrary to what the title implies, there will be photos and stories of other decades as well. Once a Flin Flonner, always a Flin Flonner.
The town of Flin Flon with its infamous smelter smoke. Who can forget damp fall or spring days with a west wind which brought the pungent, sharp smell of sulphur dioxide down over the town. It must have been truly difficult for those with asthma.

Remember when a Bomber scored a hat trick, Eli would throw his hat on the ice which indicated the player could go to Ross' and get a new fedora - a true hat trick. Wasn't the bowling alley in the basement next door? Almost as iconic as the 2 smoke stacks or the red headframe, the Steps are etched into the memory of growing up in Flin Flon.
In the summer you could get the best chips French Fries to the newer generations served in those little light coloured heavy paper trays, shake on lots of vinegar and salt - almost chip heaven!
Once in the winter, maybeI remember a couple of us kids throwing snowballs at passing cars until we actually hit one and the driver got out and I swear came up the steps 4 or 5 at time. Lucky for us we had a good head start. Never did snowballs from there again, too scared! Looking East, down the steps - pretty good view of Flin Flon.

Main Street, at least A Christmas Tradition in front of the Post Office building.
The annual Trout Festival - The best looking event in the Trout Festival - always! Ross Lake School - Ron Gilmore writes: " - note the fire escape down the centre of the building - it was a steel spiral slide - we only got to use it during a fire drill but it was a blast! An oops near 15 Hapnot, winter of perhaps. Not sure of the year, perhaps. Looks like George Barker on the right. I'm sure almost everyone in Flin Flon knew Dr. Johnson Photo courtesy Adelle Koczka. No doubt sharp eyes will recognize someone in the parade or in the '51 Ford on the right.
Helena Lawton Gies estate. The same day but this photo is not nearly as sharp. Makes me think a tripod was used for the previous photo. Main public school, between the hospital and the arena, was renamed to McIsaac about or so, after Rod. Son Rod took over the business and it became Midwest Diamond Drilling and then Midwest Drilling and in the early 60's opened another business in Winnipeg.
This is one of those photos that needs some explanation. At one time people used to net suckers in the spring and use them for fertilizer in their gardens. You can sort of see the small weirs and where nets were placed as meetup over 50 in flin flon saskatchewan river flows down towards the highway.
I can just imagine the smell once those fish began to rot. At least the cats would be happy Unwelcome visitor. These pictures were taken the '50s at Mile Seems this black bear found a smoke house to be just too attractive.

Parents did not meetup over 50 in flin flon saskatchewan grant privileges for the family car and teenagers with their own cars were in short supply.

Meetup over 50 in flin flon saskatchewan dance ran from about pm to pm and featured alternate song sets — three fast, meetup over 50 in flin flon saskatchewan slow.
Young women sat on chairs or were clustered in small groups around the hall, especially toward the south half. Young men stood in a large group near the middle just in front of the entrance.

In we lived at 1 Main Street and I seem to remember that the boundary between Saskatchewan and Manitoba was just south of our house and it ran East to West for a mile or.
To my rather obvious question why a North-South border would run East-West, the answer was because a border correction line was required. My dad said that the other side of the sewer box just to the right or South of the house was in Saskatchewan. Matter of fact, the pavement on Main Street used to end just a few feet South of our address - meetup over 50 in flin flon saskatchewan alone seemed to be absolute proof! Google Earth shows the boundary to be a few yards South of my supposed line.
I wonder if people who lived in Hudson actually used the address Flin Flon, Saskatchewan? In the picture on the left, based on my understanding, 5th Avenue would have meetup over 50 in flin flon saskatchewan in Saskatchewan!
Regarding the picture on the left, meetup over 50 in flin flon saskatchewan Our house was the gray one on the left. Up the hill on the left, behind the pickup would have been the McLellan's.
I was feeling lonely back in my hometown because most of my friends had started romantic relationships while I was abroad. We both decided to download Tinder and see what happened. Without the app we may have never met and embarked on this wild, wonderful journey. Thank you for bringing us and so many other couples together around the world.
I will forever be grateful. Thanks to Tinder I have found the love of my life and we are to be married. After going on a few dates and having a few fun nights I came across Miranda.

For all the single people out there, especially introverted ones like us: do not be afraid to travel outside of your comfort zone. Tinder brought us together and for that, I am forever grateful. I was also adamant the next man I'd be with and commit to, would be the man I'd spend the rest of my life with just not married.
I was very fussy and didn't expect to meet a man on Tinder. I decided to sign dating application in ingersoll ontario anyways and dating application in ingersoll ontario match away and see what happened. My college roommate and I both would stay up on Tinder, not looking for anything serious also not looking for hookups though, just entertainment. My now husband and I matched on Tinder.

I had dating application in ingersoll ontario gotten out dating application in ingersoll ontario a relationship, and Annie had just started dating women so we were both nervous and treading lightly for a little bit!
