Charles Dickens “The Pickwick Papers”

With Charles Dickens again we see references to hockey in multiple illustrations from “The Pickwick Papers”.  First published in 1836, there is an illustration called “Mr. Pickwick Slides” where we see on the ice a hockey stick, bung, and a curling broom. Later versions of the illustrations show ice skates on the bank of the pond.
