Keys to History

According to the caption on this postcard, written in English, this is probably in the west end of the island. However, waltzing on skates, like skating in general, was certainly practiced in many neighbourhoods of the city. From 1900 to 1910, the first wave of skating rinks was built in parks and squares all over Montreal.
