WOW!!, that brings back memories of Northern B.C., Alex! Where we lived, at Kemano, BC, Alcan had lots of these Quonsets, which they used as accommodation for the single employees, plus families lived in Quonsets also, before the "permanent" housing was built. The hospital there was in 2 quonsets joined together at one end, as was the Mess Hall for the single men, - catered for by the firm of "Crawley & McCracken LOL, what a name for people who prepared the "grub", - nicknamed "Crawleys". Oh, you have brought back sooo many memories, lol.
