0-29 : The Kerrisdale Arena



The Kerrisdale Arena in Vancouver, also known as the Cyclone Taylor Arena, officially opened November 11, 1949. This photo from early 1950 shows off the new arena and the surrounding neighbourhood. Located at West 41st Avenue and East Boulevard, the skating facility was also the site of many concerts including a 1956 visit by Bill Haley and the Comets.

The massive school in the background is Point Grey Secondary.
