1925 Ottawa Gunners Cabinet photo
Lot #634

This incredible cabinet photo measures 13 x 11 1/2 with the frame border. It depicts the Ottawa Gunners intermediate champions of the OCHL in 1925. The Gunners played in the OCHL (Ottawa City Hockey League) for most of the 1920's.  They are famous for having both Alex Connell and Syd Howe play for them.

The Gunners had 3 teams based on age; the senior, intermediate and junior teams.  Each team won championships in the 1920's. This team had one NHL player on the roster, Milt Halliday, who also played for the Ottawa Senators. Halliday started his hockey career close to home, playing first for the Stewartons and then for the Gunners. The Ottawa Senators signed him as a free agent on October 24, 1926. Halliday played 38 games for Ottawa that season, and was part of the 1927 Stanley Cup winning squad, the last Ottawa team to win the Stanley Cup. There is one small hole on the left border.
