A Slap Shot In Time
Upon doing research for my new book A Slap Shot In Time, it was discovered that many of the photos I wanted to include were unable to be found at the Minnesota Historical Society archives. These photos were most likely misplaced or simply lost over time. This webpage will serve as an addendum to the book, hosting newspaper clips of the photos I was unable to find. Also, we had access to thousands, yes thousands, of the teams original PR photos, and unfortunately could not include them all in the book. Eventually I may add some of those as well, but I need time to get them watermarked to protect them.
