Ice skates
Description Wooden-soled ice skates with cast iron blade supports and mild steel blades. A screw rises from the heel of each skate for fastening into the heel of the wearer's shoe. Three steel wires under the soles of the skates are intended to hold leather straps that fasten over the wearer's feet. Stamped into the arch of each wooden sole is the following: "H. CLARK'S / PATENTS / MARCH, 19, '61 / APRIL, 22, '62 / JORDAN, N.Y. / 11."
