Leafs Game Day....1962

I scanned these pics from a 1962 Maple Leaf Gardens program. The article describes how the team arrives at the Gardens at 10:30 on the morning of a game to check their equipment. There was no game day skate other than putting the skates on while still wearing your suit to test out the edges. The shots of them on the ice with skates and suits are pretty cool.

Bert Olmstead and Eddie Litzenberger putting on the blades.

Billy Harris out for the most casual game day skate in history.

Bob Pulford and captain George Armstong yukking it up.

Tim Horton digging into his 2pm dinner of steak and potatoes.
