Following his service on the Manhattan project as an engineering technician, my father ended up in Okinawa during the Korean War operating and servicing radar tracking systems. As a reward for his service military sent him to Winnipeg Canada To conduct cold weather testing on experimental radar systems. It took me a few years to figure out why he didn't like snow.

I wanted to share this family photo of 52 Weeks of Photos 2022 Journey with the community. Location: Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Date: 1954.

What a miserable place. Its not so much the snow but the arctic blasts and consecutive days of frigid temps.  I would not wish that upon anyone. What a shock going from tropical Okinawa to Winnipeg. thanks for sharing

Harold does not look like a happy camper. Thank you for a peek into days gone by.
