Lord Stanley and Krass Brothers?

Well it seems Lord Stanley won't be living in Philly this year ;-( Great effort by the Flyers who would not have even made the playoffs, let alone the Stanley Cup Finals, if not for beating the Rangers in the last game of the year.

To your left is 44 buddy Jack Dougherty posing with the Cup the last time the Flyers won. Hard to believe they made a French cuff shirt like that back on the 70's! Jacob Reed's Sons? Lit Brothers? Boyd's? Wanamaker's? Gimbels's? Jack Lang? Strawbridge & Clothier? Krass Brothers? But it was better than a leisure suit ;-0

Since Jack was from Mom's old neighborhood, near St. Columba's at 21st Street and Lehigh Avenue, the picture below would be from the 40's. Any old guys from Swampoodle can help me out with the particulars.
