          : The Mount Royal Arena was an indoor arena located in Montreal, Quebec, Canada at the corner of Mount Royal and St. Urbain Street.[1] It was home of the National Hockey League (NHL) Montreal Canadiensfrom 1920 to 1926, before moving to the then two-year-old Montreal Forum. It had a capacity of 6,000 seated, 10,000 when including standing room. It was a natural ice rink without machines to mechanically freeze the ice.
          It opened partly unfinished on January 10, 1920 for a game between the Canadiens and Toronto,[2] won by Montreal 14-7. A week later, parts of a balcony broke before a game with Ottawa, and police stopped sales at 6,500.[2] The rink had been built quickly to house the Canadiens who had lost their arena, Jubilee Arena to fire in 1919.
          The Canadiens eventually moved from the arena because of its uneven natural ice surface. The team wanted a mechanically frozen ice surface, but never was able to get one in this rink, as owner Thomas Duggan concentrated on getting American franchises into the NHL rather than fulfilling his statements that he would install ice-making equipment in the arena.
          After the Canadiens left, the arena was converted into an auditorium, later into a commercial building. While an auditorium, Enrico Caruso sang there and Norman Bethune once gave an important speech to rally his supporters.[3] On February 29, 2000, it was destroyed by fire. A Provigo supermarket now stands on the arena's former site.[3]

                Offered by the American Publishing Corporation. These poster match the 1971 puzzles.

                I now have 6 of these hockey posters. I believe there may be a total of 11 different posters in this set.

                Looking to buy the Brad Park, Rod Gilbert, Gary Unger , Ken Hodge, John Mckenzie Phil Esposito (white Jersey) and Bobby Orr (Black Jersey)

                  How do you store or display your posters?

                  I know you didn’t ask me, but I’ll barge in with my 2 cents anyway. I store my smaller posters in mylar L-sleeves, which are then in an archival drop-front metal-corner box. Larger posters (e.g. Coke posters) are in top loaders.

                  No displaying... I store them in large made envelopes I then tuck them away from light....

                  The only item that I'm currently displaying is my Frank Mahovlich puzzle.
