Parabolic Ice Rink

Tourist map designed by Mr. Cumming in 1947

It was 1958 when Marmora Mining Engineer,  James D. Cumming wrote to Maple Leaf Gardens with his brilliant plan for a parabolic Ice surface for hockey rinks.  He pointed out the game would be faster and more interesting for fans.  We all know his design was immediately taken up.  His letter and plan hung in Maple Leaf Gardens until it closed in 2001,  when the two items were sold at auction.  Lucky for us,  they were purchased by Aaron Logan,  who donated them to the Marmora Historical Foundation in November of 2015
