SPECTRUM CHANGEOVER CREW MEMBERS DURING REMOVAL OF FLYERS 1977-78 SEASON ICE
SPECTRUM CHANGEOVER CREW: THE SPECTRUM (May 1977)
In the background, notice the truncated lettering of “Spectrum” hand-painted in red on the aluminum ramp that was used for loading and unloading trucks in the delivery tunnel.
Lots of items and tools were frequently stolen from the Spectrum, so it was decided to spray paint “Spectrum” on the ramp to prevent its disappearance.
The crew is standing by a pile of ice, holding mops, ice breakers and shovels, the essential tools of the trade. The broken up ice was directed toward a large drain, just behind the crew. The drain was about 15-feet deep and forty- feet wide. In this picture, the overflow of solid ice is about to be hosed down with hot water to expedite the melting process.
