Historical Photos of Vancouver Hockey

The Vancouver Public Library Historical Photographs Flickr account has a small (29 photo) album of “Hockey in Vancouver” that’s worth browsing. It features player portraits and a few game shots dating from the late 19-teens to 1960. Hey, there’s a visiting Gordie Howe!

I love seeing the antique gear and hand-painted “photoshop” treatments. With under 600 views, this collection is woefully underappreciated. Thanks, nameless multimedia librarian!
