Joseph Butchko - Ice Skate Collection

Joseph Butchko died in 1987, but his collection and passion for ice skates and all things ice-skating lives on. We are proud to care for and curate his amazing collection and will be working to make it available for anyone interested in learning more about the history of ice skating. We intend to display (online) - many of his ice skates, posters, photographs and articles relating to skating and its rich history.
