Sylvan’s 100th: Unidentified person identified

Another person has been identified in the picture featured in last week’s Sylvan Lake News under the heading Sylvan’s 100th.

A scene from 1946-47 shows a hockey game on the skating rink on corner of Main Street and 48th Avenue in Sylvan Lake. The building in the background is the curling rink (from the Turner collection). This is one of a series of historic photos we’ll publish during Sylvan Lake’s 100th anniversary. If you’ve got a photo you’d like us to print

Another person has been identified in the picture featured in last week’s Sylvan Lake News under the heading Sylvan’s 100th.

Sitting at the lunch counter in Sylvan Lake Curling Rink in the January 1957 photo, between Mina Reiswick and Ben Reiswick is Rose Furnald, according to her daughter Verna, who now lives in Red Deer.

She receives the paper and phoned after spotting the picture and missing names.

Sylvan Lake News will continue to publish historic photos of the town and its residents. If you’ve got something of interest, particularly with people in it, please contact the office at 403-887-2331 or email editor@sylvanlakenews.com.
