Ice skating & winter fashions 1900

Hi you all! It's still very frosty, snowy and icy here, and I am hoping for the warmer weather we have been promised in the next days.
While browsing in one of my old 'German Housewives' magazines from 1900 I saw these lovely images of skaters, and the lady dressed in her winter finery. Please feel free to download and copy the images if you would like to!




Have a good day, keep warm, and thanks for looking in!
