The photo of the girl's hockey team accompanying the article looked familiar and I immediately remembered where I saw it.
According to the caption in Modern Primitives (V. Vale & Andrea Juno, Re/Search Publications, 1989) the group portrayed is "The Edmonton, Alberta, girls' hockey team, circa 1916" (page 46.)
The photograph accompanied an interview with an artist known as "ManWoman" who was describing the project of trying to de-Nazify the swastika and was himself a collector of non-Nazi swastikas.
Assuming the quoted caption is accurate, that picture has nothing to do with Naziism.

It's true. But most of the illustrations I use have really little to do with the actual context of the post.

My point is that had I not seen the photograph before, I would likely have assumed from the context that I was looking at a photograph from the Third Reich and thus not asked simple questions like "are those hair and clothing styles typical of Germany in the 1930s and '40s?" or "Isn't the photo quality somewhat primitive for that era?" or "Did they even play ice hockey in Germany under Hitler?"
Also, the young women in the photograph now have grand-children and great-grand-children who don't want the memory of their grand-mothers and great-grand-mothers linked with Naziism. I managed to find more information on the widespread use of the swastika in Canadian hockey in early 20th century through Google.

Really? If this was 1946, then the swastika here would definitely mean for "Hitler" and the German Reich! Cool finds though, I have been keen over your holocaust blog (and links) for quite some time now. Thanks.
