Dr Atkinson (left) with his shooting car, a 4-door Model T. Beside him is Dr Norm Bailey (maybe?), Terry Atkinson, and unknown friend, circa 1938. Photo taken in front of Dr. Atkinson's garage in Portage la Prairie. The large building in the background was then known as the Mental Institution - a facility for mentally challenged people where Dr Atkinson was Superintendent 1929 to 1940, and 1946 to 1965. He died in 1965 as a result of an automobile accident on Highway 240, on his way to his lodge at Tin Town.
