Cornwall Photos 1950s

The Water St Arena in Cornwall, ON was one of those great old spots that was perfect for Pro Wrestling. Chris Rohde of Cogeco produced a cool video a few years back on the history of the arena and featured a look at wrestling.
Video is on Youtube at  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50_QOqu7hyI

He is currently working on a series that will include Wrestling memories at the Arena and sent me over a few great photos that were passed to him by David Murphy.

These are circa mid to late 1950's.
Cornwall has seen several different promotions over the years, Tunney, Eddie Quinn, and of course Dave McKigney all put on shows at the Arena. There is some Cornwall info on the main site and lots of photos and such from this era

Below is Yvon Robert and Ed Carpentier
