Burrards vs Salmonbellies

Box Lacrosse August 16th, 1975 — At one time, in the 1940’s, the biggest rivalry in town was box lacrosse between the New Westminster Salmonbellies and the Vancouver Burrards. It was standing room only with sell out crowds when the teams played at Queens park Arena in New Westminster or in the Vancouver Forum. By the time I took this picture in Queens Park Arena boxla as it was known locally had faded to a fringe sport and the back of the sports pages if it was mentioned at all but at one time it was the biggest pro sport in town and bought houses for two of my uncles who played for the Burrards.
