Thompson Manitoba in the 1950’s, 1960’s and 1970’s. My home town.

Thompson Manitoba. This is the town that my dad and mom got married in and worked in and raised their family in and finally retired in the 1986. It is the town that I lived in until I was 18 years old. It is my home town.  I moved out in 1982 to go to college, coming home to only work for the summers. It was also the town that my Uncle Ed Sawicki, and his wife Emily worked and raised their family.
