I Wish I Had a River I Could Skate Away On
One of my favourite winter activities is definitely ice skating. One of the benefits of growing up in the cold snowy north was the fact that I actually learned to skate on outdoor frozen ice! Nothing beats that feeling of graceful freedom I get from gliding across a glistening frozen rink. Since moving from a more temperate part of Canada, where outdoor ice skating was a scarce luxury, I am looking forward to the idea of skating on the local river when it gets a bit colder here. In the mean-time, I thought I'd post these adorable images of "Ice Skating Fashions" from LIFE, circa 1939.
