UBC #8 - The Bruins In Black and White 1924-1966 PB

The Bruins In Black and White 1924-1966 by Richard A. Johnston
Arcadia Publishing c2003 Softcover

since the hometown team has won five of their last six contests (all on the road) now would be the perfect time to jump back on that frozen bandwagonzamboni and show your bruin pride. The Bruins in Black and White 1924-1966 makes for an exciting refresher course on the early days of our causeway street brethren. this book's got plenty of game photos, media clippings, and off the ice pictures to encapsulate the rich early history of beantown's hockey franchise. from the days of eddie shore to the "uke line" and the first years of the bobby orr lovefest, you learn all about it. though if you move the book around a bit it sort of (not really, actually doesn't) feels like you're watching it on the tele. also, as the title suggests, this book has all bacl and white photos. i presume this to be so because color wasn't invented until '67 by the space program. that's why all the kids started getting high and dancing in the streets. hooray for hockey!
