Digital copies of photographs of Deseronto High School hockey teams

  • CA ON00156 DA 2009.18
  • File
  • 1925-1927

Copies of two photographs:

  1. Deseronto High School
    Central Ontario Inter-Scholastic League Champs
    FRONT - L. Bruyea, l.w.; F. Whitton, centre; Maurice Detlor, r.w.; C. McVicker, goal.
    TOP - J. Whitton, Manager; J. McVicker, Mascot; L. McVicker, sub.; M. Perry, r. defense; C. Cole, l. defense; F. Butzer, sub.; E. I. Gale, Principal of Deseronto High School.
    The picture is undated, but E. I. Gale was Principal of the school between 1922 and 1926. There is a high overlap of team members with the 1926-1927 team photograph, so this may be the 1925-1926 hockey team.
