Another photo taken at the same time as the one above (c. 1912-1914), and with the names of most of the people given,
can be found on the Lanark County Genealogical Society "Mostly Photos" page.

Many thanks to Jennifer Willfang for the hockey photo above, and to David Bromley for most of the names which are from the Perth Courier where this photo was once reprinted. "E. Stone" seems to be a typographical error -- should it be "F Stone"?
