Don’t Forget The Corn Syrup, Mom
Beehives were part of my youth and I would nag my mom to buy lots of Bee Hive corn syrup so I could remove the labels at the top and send them to the St. Lawrence Starch Company and get my free pictures.
The photos measure 5.5 x8 inches and some are extremely difficult to find. Over the years, more than a thousand different player photos were produced from three different groups - Group one – 1934-43; Group two- 1944-64; and Group three -1964-67.
I’ve concentrated on Group two because it’s what I remember with great fondness from my childhood. And of course my collection is all Montreal Canadiens. There’s no way in the world I’d have an enemy Beehive in my house.
