The Curling Image Project (Week 12)
Curling History Blog, it is the same group of curlers, although in a different lineup. Check it out! Assuming that the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland has the correct attribution for their image, then CIP-80 is another photo of curlers at St Fort house, Fife, in 1895! (6.5x4.25in)
ADDED LATER: Lynne Stevenson has provided the information that this was her grandfather's trophy! He won it outright for Heavy Horses and took the horse off the top and donated it to Kirkcaldy Ice Rink as the Kinnaird Trophy for the National Open Curling Championship. It got very damaged over the years and was returned to the family. Her cousin Bill in Australia has it now.
Thanks to Lynne Stevenson for extra information of CIP-82. Photos are as credited where the photographer is known. Check the archive (on the right) for previous Curling Image Project posts.
