Smooth Skating!

Over the years, the New Yorker magazine has used skating as a theme for its cover.  I'll post a few from time to time.  Enjoy this one which evokes the rink-side glamour of pre-war St. Moritz.  (Note the bent knee free-legs.  Was that a style thing for the era?  I'm sure Coach A. would tell me I need to extend more if I did this!)


  1. Sonja Henie had a microbend in almost everything she did! It was beautiful!

  2. The boot styles in the 1930s, as portrayed above, also tended to be taller on the ankle than current equipment.
