Ridin' High in April, Shot Down in May

Leafs couldn't play D in 1948 either
This photo is a 1948 match-up between the Leafs and the New York Rangers. Even more impressive at full resolution, the shot comes from Time Magazine's photo archives, which are now on-line and searchable.

There isn't much hockey content, but what's there is pretty interesting and certainly enough to make Edna Krabappel faint.strap on your skates Gordie, you're going in
Frankly, I'm stunned that the pictures haven't had some sort of digital lock put on them or at the very least had the right click function disabled, but I suppose that's a matter for IP lawyers to fight over.

Next time you've got 20 minutes to kill, you could do worse than to drift through their archives - besides, the Derek Sanderson collection is pure gold...Boom Boom Geoffrion


  1. Nice. That top picture will be my desktop backround for a couple of weeks now I think.

  2. Thanks for this MF 37. That first picture is amazing, and the General is right, it makes a beautiful desktop background.

  3. that top question begs the questions - where are the leaf forwards?

  4. Even back then there was that one asshole standing up when there was a scoring chance.
