Hockey in a small town...long ago.

Hi,
An 84 year old coach brought me boxes of stuff from this team from the 60's and early 70's in Michigan's upper peninsula.

They had the first paid female goalie in the US, and the Hanson Brothers (actually Carlson Bros.) played their first years of professional hockey here.

The Hanson Bros photos show that they really didn't change appearance for the movie. Hmmm...good or bad?

I was hoping to capture the spirit of these times and players.
Could you check out the photo galleries?
They didn't have plexiglass or anything on the sides...
Anyway...
This took months to put together.
It's good to be here on the boards!

My name is Greg btw. I hope to chime in on other subjects here too.
Go Bruins from this Michigan native. Used to listen on WBZ Boston in my bedroom here in MI.

and from long ago

There are some pictures from when kids from our town would go play the prisoners in the maximum security prison here!
The Red Wings played the prisoners too when the coach lost a bet.

Nice site, Greg.

Heh...compare the picture of the 69-70 team (http://www.marquetteironrangers.com/teamk.htm) to the 72-73 one (http://www.marquetteironrangers.com/teami.htm). Times changed pretty quickly, looks like.
