Outdoor Rinks, School, Habs-Leafs, And Who’s That Guy With The Puck?
This beautiful piece of art measuring more than two feet by three feet, was originally in a Quebec school in the 1940′s. It was used, along with other outdoor scenes, as part of student essays or copying or whatever it was they did with it in class. It’s now framed and sits proudly in my living room, and it brings back many memories of playing on an outdoor rink growing up in Orillia.
What’s funny about it is the Montreal player on the left, handling the puck.
I would say there’s a distinct resemblance to Leafs star Charlie Conacher.
