“New York on Ice: Skating in the City”
December 20, 2017 – April 15, 2018
A rare 19th-century broadside advertisement from the George Glazer Gallery is part of an exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York about the history of ice skating in the city and how the pastime has “left its mark on New York’s urban landscape,” including Central Park. Drawn and engraved by Edward Bookhout around 1860, the broadside advertises skates sold at Conover & Walker, a hardware and sporting goods store, with a whimsical illustration of an assortment of men, women, and children skating on top of a giant blade and the slogan “Everything in the skating line (except ponds) to suit everybody.” View the broadside on our site.
