(24d2)
"Ontario rock heavy - Ontario's Bob Thompson, left, and Fred Wight, skip of the Newfoundland rink, engage in a sweeping match during the 10th end of their afternoon encounter, yesterday.

Newfoundland's rock slid to 12-foot ring, and they scored two points in the end." (24e2)

"Set to deliver - Alberta skip, Hec Gervais, is set to deliver a rock in yesterday's action at the London-St. Thomas Brier. Gervais' rink turned in their poorest performance of the event as they took a 13-5 drubbing at the hands of Ontario's Paul Savage rink. Also seen in the picture are Darrel Sutton, left, lead for the Alberta rink, and Warren Hansen, second for the Alberta squad." (24f2)
One black and white photograph used in St. Thomas Times-Journal article published March 11, 1974, with caption:
"Brier spectators - Watching the fnial ends of the Canadian Curling Championships at London, Saturday, were Lord and Lady Elgin, centre and Lt. Col. R.A. Karn, commanding officer of the Elgin Regiment, at left and Mrs. Karn, at right. Lord Elgin is the Honorary Colonel of the regiment, and has a special interest in the 'roaring game' which was born in Scotland." (24g2)
"Macdonald Brier Tankard winners - The Alberta rink displays the Macdonald Brier Tankard Saturday at the London Gardens. The Alberta foursome registered an 8-2 record in the six-day event to capture the silverware. Members of the championship squad, left to right, are: Hec Gervais, skip; Ron Anton, vice; Warren Hansen, second; and Darrel Sutton, lead." (24h2)
"Winning shot - Members of the Alberta rink raise their arms in victory after skip Hec Gervais made a superb take out shot on his final shot in the 12th end. Alberta's 4-2 victory over Quebec coupled with Ontario's 11-8 upset over Saskatchewan allowed the Alberta foursome to claim the Macdonald Brier Tankard without a playoff Sunday." (24i2)
"Bonspiel champions - Larry Lampman's St. Thomas entry captured the annual H.I.R.A. Limited bonspiel recently. Members of the rink, left to right, are: (seated) Lynda Herbert, lead; Sue Ferguson, vice; (standing) Larry Lampman, skip; and Bob Harris, second." (24j2)
