You have to be a Canadian of a certain vintage to recognize this picture. It is the once world famous Dionne Quintuplets, here all wearing Toronto Maple Leafs jerseys. Born near Callandar, Ontario way back in 1934 (long before anyone heard of Kate Plus Eight), the sisters are famous for being the first known set of quintuplets in the world to survive infancy.
About a month ago I did a story about a set of triplets playing hockey in Nanaimo, British Columbia. Bruce Hutchinson of the National Post has more on their story.
