Hockey anyone?

Outdoor Rink

Outdoor rink



On a bright clear cold day there is nothing like a friendly game of ice hockey outdoors to generate warmth.  All you need is a stick, a puck, a pair of skates (hand-me-downs, too tight, too big, no matter!) and a few buddies.  Of course it needs a dedicated family or community effort to build and maintain the rink.  But it provides two precious commodities – ice-time and fun. No wonder it has been a favourite winter pastime through the ages in Kingston.  This photograph is from the Hillier Collection V062 in Queen’s University Archives.
