There are “Journeys Into” the teams, games, players, “builders of the game”, buildings and broadcasters of the past.

A Change at Centre (Ice Logo)

The picture above is a classic above us view of centre ice, circa 1960’s, at the Montreal Forum. The iconic logos on either side of the centre ice stripe were props in what was described as “The Cathedral of Hockey”. There was an awe to the place.
