Ye Olde Rollerskis

I was randomly browsing though some old documents on archive.org. In particular, I looked over this catalog from 1911:

On the bottom of page 41, I noted some "automobile racing skates."

$10 for "finer quality." Bindings included!

Interesting. Nordic cross skates is obviously an old concept although the 1911 version seems to have solid tires.

Using those on what I imagine the condition of the roads/paths were at that time seems tough.
