6 Man Tag Photo


















I picked up this original Turofsky photo featuring a 6 man tag bout with the main stars of MLW from around 1949-1950. It doesn't appear to be MLG as you can make out banners hanging, if anyone can ID the location please let me know, I do have the ads and results from these years and couldn't locate this bout at MLG.

From left to right is Whipper Watson, The Masked Marvel, Ray Villmer (I believe), Special Ref Jack Dempsey, Fred Atkins, Pat Flanagan, Ski Hi Lee, and 2nd ref , maybe Ernie Powers

A great shot and signed by 5 of the participants

Layton/Tunney/Hiff Photo

Another fabulous photo from Roger Baker, this shot taken at the Hot Stove Lounge at MLG mid 60's featuring Lord Layton, Frank Tunney, and Announcer Jerry Hiff. Tunney looks to be hiding his cigar behind Hiff. Roger took photos at MLG for many years and is very gracious to share with me for the various sites of Maple Leaf Wrestling.com.
