This print features the Stanley Cup with two vintage hockey sticks over a vintage map of Ottawa around 1912, around the time the cup evolved into a professional prize!
Lord Stanley, Governor General of Canada, declared in 1892 at the Chateau Laurier Hotel in Ottawa that a challenge cup should be created and awarded to Canada's top ranked amateur hockey team. He purchased a silver punch bowl and in the winter of 1893 the Dominion Hockey Challenge Cup was awarded for the first time to the Montreal Hockey Club. In the early days any team from coast to coast could challenge the defending team.
Print size is 12.5" x 12.5" (31.75 x 31.75 cm).
