Doesn’t Get Any Better Than This

I am a sucker for old hockey photographs and throughout the year, Habs Inside/Out has displayed the photos of James Rice…

You’ve likely seen James Rice’s historic hockey photographs without ever knowing they came from his bulky box camera.
There is Rice’s most famous image of all, a finely detailed study of Canadiens legend Howie Morenz. It is by far the most widely published photo of the player voted the greatest hockey talent of the past century’s first 50 years.
Then there’s his shot of Georges Vézina outside the Forum, almost the only picture ever seen of the goaler. Vézina is looking down his battered stick to the asphalt beneath his bare skate blades, a year or so before he died of tuberculosis in 1925.

read on and spend some time there, you will come away feeling better about the game…
