Peel Through the Photographic Lens
Winter Sports in Peel
The Region of Peel Archives, inspired by the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea, is highlighting Olympic events from luge to curling, as played in Peel. “Winter Sports in Peel” shows citizens engaged in winter activities, which also shows the more communal, unassuming beginnings of sports greatness. Everyone starts somewhere, whether on a rink at a city centre, or evenings out at the curling hall.
