More Rare Leafs Turofsky Photos

Last week I posted some very cool Turofsky photos of the Maple Leafs of the late 40's that a reader sent me from their own collection. There are so many great ones I had to share some more.
These first three are just terrific shots of Leaf captain Syl Apps in the latter stages of his Hall of Fame career.

Here's a very young Bill Barilko. He's probably 20 years old in this photo.

Here's one actually signed by 23 year old Howie Meeker, then in his second year in the NHL.


Another autographed photo, this one of another youngster, Sid Smith. He would go on to be a three-time NHL All-Star.

The final shot is of Ted "Teeder" Kenendy who at 22 years old had already completed his fifth NHL season on the way to the Hall of fame.
