Moment Frozen in Time:

Here’s a photo that might bring some smiles to the people who are currently climbing or working on wind towers in the area—and horror to the minds of the Workers’ Compensation Board staff. The year was 1976 and this fellow (anyone recall who he was?) can be seen with his own style of safety gear: hang onto a single rope with one hand while spray-painting with the other. This appeared on the front page of The Provost News of May 5, 1976. Here’s how the original cutline read: "Don’t Look Down . . . Things are looking up for this workman as he is near the top of the Pioneer elevator in Provost giving the building a fresh coat of paint. Even though he was new on the job he invited the photographer for a walk on the roof for a real good view. The photographer declined." ©Provost News File Photo.
