A black and white photograph of eight unidentified Ontario Ladies' College students posed in for a group photo with hockey sticks and wearing ice skates in the Barnes arena in Whitby, Ontario from 1906.
I dont want to be offensive, but at first look it seems like a witches ceremony.
This literally just showed up in my newsfeed on Facebook. It’s Waybe Gretzky from his time in the Soo in a McDonalds.
Everybody's a fashion critic!
Even the great one likes his french fries!
This photograph was taken during an "Ice Carnival" at Sandusky Bay, Ohio around 1940.

L Hueghlin - Trainer | Joseph H Seagram | J Gibson | H F Boehmer - Goaltender | P J Livingstone | Edward F Seagram - Captain | F G Oliver - Manager | W H Dixson | J S A MacDonald
THE VICTORIA HOCKEY TEAM - LUNENBURG - NOVA SCOTIA - 1907.
Imagine if a team had the courage to bring back turtlenecks.
Weird on this photo is, that only 2 guys are watching directly to photograph.
One of those players is Jack Gibson, a HHOFer and famous from the IHL (1906–07). The guy to the right of Gibson is opera singer Charles "Carlo" Boehmer who was a friend of Enrico Caruso and gave concerts in Italy and South America.
Good observation there. Let us not forget about the Seagram brothers in this photo, Edward and Joseph, sons of Joseph Emm Seagram, founder of Seagram's (Whisky). Many years later his company was the largest owner of alcoholic beverage lines in the world. Edward was the president of the company in the 1920s after his father died. Needless to say that both brothers were extremely wealthy back in the days.

This was the First Hockey team the Isthmians ever had 1888-9 "Mohican" MKG(Malcolm Kenneth Gordon) Capt" written in pen on the bottom half of the back of the photo.
I often wonder about this with old team photos. I imagine the photographer having to point at each guy and say, "you look left, you look right, you look straight at the camera, you look left... no, YOUR left... you, look kind of vaguely at the floor"
I wonder if there was some sort of guideline they followed as to what was the "right" way to arrange them?

MCGILL UNIVERSITY HOCKEY TEAM 1881 AT CRYSTAL PALACE, MONTREAL
This is the first known photo of hockey players in uniform.
The 1877 McGill team was the first organized hockey team. In theory, this photo could potentially show someone who was involved in the events of 1877. Especially the fellow on the right who is presumably a referee or coach of some sort. Certainly, most of the fellows in that picture would have known members of the '77 team and would have been understudies to them.
Whatever you do, do NOT listen to their "puck rock".

New York journal (New York [N.Y.]), February 3, 1897
Love the contrast in photos in the RG Orr post above. Gives a great sense of history when you're spanning from the Forum in the 60's, Howe just before retirement all the way to the Vegas Golden Knights.
