Fearman Hockey Team and Pork Chops!!!!!!!!!!!.

Here we have the `Fearmans Hockey Team from 1905.
             They were another of the many teams that were sponsored by local business men, as you can see their logo comes in the form of a home-made material `F`.
The Team were part of the Hamilton Wholesale Hockey League and were champions in 1905 hence the photograph.
The winning cup is displayed in front of the team captain and rover A.C.Hagar.
             Fearman`s  were an early Hamilton, Ontario meat packing concern. Started by Frederick William Fearman in the 1850`s with the production of pork products.
