J.B. Marcotte organized the Twin City Cyclones, a legendary Franco-American hockey team, in 1926. Marcotte transformed his garden space on Central Avenue into a skating rink by flooding it with a garden hose drawn from his cellar. This photo shows the team after they won their second consecutive junior championship.
