Do you Know What This Hockey Sweater Was?



Hello Linda,

I have an old photo album from 1915 that was my grandmother’s and I have been trying to find out who the people are in these photos and where the pictures were taken. My grandmother Gladys Comba, was born in Almonte in 1897 and lived there until she was around 20. I have had some success on my quest but one picture has stumped me so I thought perhaps you could help me out given your extensive research into Lanark geneology and history.

It is a picture of a young man in a sports sweater (see attached). The sweater looks like it is woollen and has a capital “C” on what looks like a wing. The date on the back of the photo is Oct 10, 1914. I was wondering if anyone knew what sports team this sweater was worn by. I am assuming it is a local team (either Almonte, Carleton Place or possibly Arnprior).
