This is the final installment of The Old Scrapbook.
It’s been a treat for me because I’ve always been proud to show it off, right from the time it was new. I was talking to an old friend the other day who had come across my blog by accident, emailed me, and the next thing we knew we were chatting on the phone. We hadn’t seen each other since grade eight and one of the things he mentioned was that he remembers coming over to my house when we were about 12 and looking through my scrapbook.
Once again it’s a potpourri of Habs universe, ending off with a glossy photo of the Rocket scoring his final NHL goal, his 626th, which occurred on April 12, 1960. I had written to one of the Toronto newspapers right after it happened and asked for a copy of the photo, which they sent.
Thanks for having a look at this old book. I’m very proud of it, and like I’ve mentioned before, if you go over to “Categories” on the right side and scroll down to “The Old Scrapbook”, you’ll see all the entries.
