Parts of North America have experienced a cold and snowy winter but possibly not breaking the record cold in White River, Ontario, Canada. We're not sure about the age of this old postcard but are guessing it's from the 1970s. The back of the card features a description of "Canada's Cold Spot" and mentions the pictured "electrically operated upright thermometer, probably the largest in the world..."
We took a look on Google Maps Streetview and, yes, it looks like the thermometer is still there ... maybe some of our Canadian friends can tell us if this "probably the largest in the world" thermometer still gives "constant accurate readings."
Being in Canada, we assume it's C but, anyway you look at it, Celsius or Fahrenheit, it's cold ...
Thank you for stopping by John's Island.
