Notes
According to Mike Filey in Toronto Sketches 8, pg. 114, there was a Stoney’s Car Market in Toronto, “a popular used car lot” which was located in the early 1950s at the intersection of Danforth Avenue and Jones Avenue in Toronto. This may be the same "Stoney’s Car Market" that is named on this jersey sweater.
