This pair of ice skates was bought from a shoemaker in Copenhagen, Denmark by Peter Peckham soon after World War II ended. He remembers he paid the shoemaker 10 packets of cigarettes for them. Peter, together with his wife Joy, used to ice skate for leisure in a number of places around the United Kingdom.
