This year’s members of the Chicago Blackhawks will probably spend the summer much differently than did their predecessors of years gone by. From the Pittsburgh Press in 1927:
However you’re planning to spend your summer, I hope you have a happy Canada Day or Fourth of July.

What a difference time makes!
Good one. I did a column a few years ago, entitled “What Did You Do On Your Day Off? I had tracked down some more modern (50’s and 60’s) examples. Thanks for those “golden oldies”.
To add to Linda’s comment, not only what a difference time makes, what a difference salaries, and good ones, make.
I enjoyed the piece, Eric. Ah, simpler times…
I had NO idea the old timers had other jobs! That is so weird…now Hockey is a full-time job!!! The Hockey history is so interesting!
What a different world it was! Everyone had off season jobs…..wow.
thanks for posting it
