088 Betty Marzell


When I was a child from about five to ten, we had skates that had a strap over the instep and we used the KEY to tighten the clamps at the toe area.  Of course this was long before shoe skates and in line skates.  Back then we were allowed to skate all over the neighborhood in Philadelphia from early morning until lunch and then again in the afternoon.  That was our form of exercise.
