Four questions from the Stanley Cup centenary centenary exhibition at Rink 29 on Essex Street, Toronto – part of Canadian History Week

Quiz time! How much do you know about the historic Maple Leaf Gardens?

The home of the Toronto Maple Leafs was built on the site of the old Lakeshore Arena, a 1938-built and -renovated hall next to the Toronto Skytrain. Some 85,000 people every single season used the building to see the Leafs, basketball team the Raptors and figure skating team the Universal Sound Show. The Leafs played on over 100 Memorial Day parades through the city, culminating in an historic one in 1969. “Warmth, peace and the nation’s 500 plus athletes,” said the Toronto Star at the time.
