Today while reading Montreal City Weblog I was interested in a post leading to a series of photographs from the 1966 Stanley Cup parade through the streets of Montreal. At the time I was six years old. I have a vague memory of attending a Stanley Cup parade during the mid-sixties (let’s face it, there were many!) so I was drawn to the shots of the parade moving north on Atwater beside the Montreal Forum. Then lo and behold, there I was! I attended the parade with my aunt and remember shaking hands with John Ferguson – who would become my favorite player as a result. You can make out my aunt with me in front of her, unfortunately Claude Provost is blocking the actual handshake.
Makes you wonder how many pictures there are of yourself out there that you don’t even know about. I fear that in this era of hyper-privacy the photo would have been pixelated.
