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.
