Primitive Antique Speed Skates:
Mfg by J.A Whelpley
Hand Forged Metal Blade
Original Long Reach Speed Skate. "Pioneer of all modern speed skates" J.A. Whelpley. "Being made low down, these skates are less likely to cramp the ankle. and consequently are adapted to long journeys...one hundred mile trips being a common occurrence." Developed near the St. Johns River, New Brunswick.
These skates are a great conversation piece. Perfect for your collection, cabin or chalet decor.
