A peep behind Sundries


December 24 2014


Once again Roy has found old NBR items on E-Bay, this time it is a Rubber Ice Hockey Puck—It is for sale by a Canadian.   Roy has been in touch with the seller and I quote:

 I have corresponded with seller to try to determine age but he has no knowledge of the date this was made. I would anticipate between 1900-1919 as the dimensions which the seller has now added to the advert is below the " game standard" first introduced in 1920.

Below is the photograph taken probably close to a century ago--showing the Puck--It is difficult to recognise all the writing
