Nostalgia for Metal Roller Skates and a Key Around the Neck
When my family lived in Newark, NJ my brother and I used to skate around the block. Your feet would hum after you took off the skates. You left your regular shoe on your foot and tried to fit it into the metal brace. I can hear the sound when I look at these old skates. Childhood of the 1950’s. They were heavy. At least that is how I remember them.
