An ashtray made up of the bottoms of three wooden hockey sticks manufactured in Bradford. Factory workers often created ashtrays out of the hockey sticks they manufactured. The base of the item has reproduction signatures (possibly stamped) of Joe Primeau, Bill Thoms and "Red" Horner. These players played for the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 1935/36 season.
"Hockey Stick Factory - Yet another industry that once thrived in the Bradford Carriage Works building. Hockey sticks for the NHL as well as axe handles came off the production line between the years 1935 to 1937."
