Dave's show at St. Lawrence Hall in Toronto.

Unfortunately I did not attend this show but it certainly looked great!

The Day Wrestling Died in Ontario
Monday July 04, 1988

A Sad Day Indeed
These photos are not mine but are definitely worthwhile and amazing.
I saw Dave drive this Ford pickup truck many times.  One night I was driving home from work around 11:45 p.m going north on Bathurst Street approaching Sheppard Avenue, and I saw his truck turn out ahead of me.  I pulled up alongside and waved at him to pull over.  He had left his jacket in my car the previous weekend when I drove him and Eric "The Red" Hanson back to Toronto from the show at Cobo Hall in Detroit.  We dropped Eric off at the Hamilton Bus Depot so he could grab the bus to Grimsby where he lived.  What a memorable night!
Again the above is not my photo but a great shot of Dave McKigney in 1970.   Please let me know if anyone knows more about this photo.

Here are two photos I took in 1974 I believe, but I'll check out the proper dates and location.

Archie Gouldie "The Stomper"  heading towards the ring at one of Dave's cards.
Hartford Love choking Dave with referee Wilf Jennings looking on. I'm sure the foot on Dave's chest belongs to Reginald Love.

Doing some house cleaning and came across this business card that was given to me Dave McKigney.
