-1970's Civic Aud Photo



Thanks to Alex Milosh for this fabulous photo taken from the press box
at the Civic Auditorium circa early 1970's

Alex related a story of sitting up there one night and having the task of lowering
the microphone into the ring for the Announcer to use prior to the match.
As it descended it hit villain Hans Schmidt who was waiting in the ring for his bout
After the bouts Alex was in the dressing room rather worried about Schmidt's reaction to
the 'incident' but Hans came up and smiled and greeted young Alex putting his fears to rest !

Pretty sure that is Tiger Jeet Singh in the ring but unsure of the others as it doesn't
match up with the available results as to his tag partner or opponents.

Thanks to Alex Milosh
