Virginiatown Ontario: Boys' Hockey Teams, 1950s & 1960s

These four photos were placed in approximate chronological order based on the apparent age of Martin Budden who appears in the first three. Due to a tremendous response to this set of photos, it took only three days to put names to most of the players. But there are still several unidentified or uncertain IDs.
