Description:
This photograph shows a group of unidentified men standing outside the St. Marys Wood Specialty Co. building which was once located where the current Subway is, across from the high school on James Street South. St. Marys Wood Specialty Co. was incorporated in 1908. They started out making hockey sticks and baseball bats, but before long manufactured axe, pick and hammer handles as well. By 1910, the company was selling sticks as far away as Regina, and by 1915 they carried sixteen models of hockey sticks and twenty-seven models of baseball bats. Despite their early success, the company struggled in the early stages of the Great Depression. In 1933, they sold to Seagram's Canada Barrels and Kegs company.
