At left, Empire of Ice by Craig Bowlsby; at right, a rare postcard of Nelson BC’s championship hockey club of 1908-09.

Hockey historian Craig Bowlsby, author of “The Knights of Winter: the History of British Columbia Hockey from 1895 to 1911” and “The Empire of Ice: The Rise and Fall of the Pacific Coast Hockey Association, 1911-1926”, will be talking about what makes a hockey postcard interesting or important.

An avid collector  of antiquarian books, Craig’s collection of rare hockey books inspired a previous volume, “Ice Age Memoirs: A Compendium and Bibliography of Hockey Publications.”
