The Curling Image Project (Week 16)

CIP-106. The 1996 Scottish Champion teams with their trophies. Back L-R: Karen Addison, David Hay, Katie Loudon, Peter Smith. Front: David Smith, Kirsty Hay (skip), Warwick Smith (skip), Edith Loudon. (8x6in, Louis Flood Photographer.)

CIP-107. In 1970, a young German team toured Scotland, playing in five different ice rinks. That's them in the front of this photograph, L-R: Rick Koester, Rick Mittag, Hans Werner, Joel Mittag. One of the teams they played against was the recent winners of the TB Murray Trophy. Back L-R: John Lawrie, David Macdonald, Archie Ballantyne (skip), and Douglas Armit. (8.25x6.25in print, by Photo Illustrations Scotland, Cockburn Street, Edinburgh.)

CIP-108. Members of the Royal Wimbledon Golf Club playing on their Cairnie-style outdoor rink in December 1944. The rink was beside the club house, and is now a car park. (8x6in print, Planet News Ltd, London.)

CIP-109. Aviemore junior curlers prepare for the opening ceremony of the Johnnie Walker Highland Week at the Aviemore rink in 1976. Recognise anyone? (8x6in print, stamped simply Johnnie Walker Picture Library.)

CIP-110. Lenzerheide in Eastern Switzerland. Is the skip really giving negative ice for the next shot! (6x4in print, by Erwin Sautter.)

CIP-111. This is the presentation group at the Inverness and Highland Region Licensed Trade Association Curling Competition, sponsored by Stewart and Son, Dundee, and Alloa Breweries. L-R: Ian Foster (Alloa Breweries), Nigel Grant (Seafield Lodge Hotel, organiser of the competition), Brian Wilkie, David McKenzie, Chris Franks, John Gair (skip), Ian Livingston (Stewarts Cream of the Barley), Nicol Manson (President IHRLTA). I do not know the year. The Aviemore Rink was opened in 1966, and I would guess this photo might date from the early 1970s. Anyone know for sure? (10x8in print, photographer not stated.)

CIP-112. This from the 2000 Ford World Curling Championships at Braehead - a spectacular way to display your collection of curling pins. A name, anyone? (5x7in print, Bob Cowan.)

ADDED LATER: Lynne Stevenson has remembered this lady as Jean Dubroy, also known as the 'Pin Lady'. See this article.
