Thistle Rink

Here’s a question for ya— why did everyone stand to watch hockey at the Thistle Rink? There is even people standing in the rafters!

Here’s another— do you ever remember sneaking in under the bleachers?

One last question— Do you know what’s going on in the photos with the people in costumes? It’s labelled, “Schmockey 1965” and that’s all we’ve got!

Did you know?

Kenora was once claimed by Ontario and by Manitoba. Both provinces claimed the area between 1878 and 1884. The case was resolved in 1884 by Queen Victoria’s Privy Council, the highest court in the world at the time.
