There is a space for a trade of the father and the residence, usually given as a Street. With Norm's birth registration these two spaces read as follows: Shade/Haddington. Both are streets in Galt. This is likely a clerical error.

Norm (Normie) Himes was for some years a professional hockey player. He played with the NewYork Americans between the wars. After retiring from hockey, he was a golf pro with a golf club as well as a partner with his brother George in the Himes Bros. Sports Store on Main Street in Galt. He died in 1958. Norm's date of death is taken from his history as it appears online in the Cambridge Hall of Fame.
