Old Football

Who are these guys?
This photo from Journal reader Michele Ouimet is something of a mystery. It was taken at Norm Perry Park of a football team sponsored by Sarnia Breweries. Ouimet’s father, Rene Ouimet, and her uncle Dick, are in the front row, second and third from right. But the rest of the team and the date are unknown. The photo appears to have been taken around 1940, probably well after Sarnia’s breweries disappeared post-Prohibition. If anyone has any information, including whether the team dog went on to star as ‘Petey’ in the Little Rascals, please send it to [email protected]

Front row, second from right is Rene Ouimet (father) and third from right is Dick Ouimet. The man in the second row, second from left, is Art Dinel.
Photo, courtesty Michele Ouimet
