Old Things and Imagination

You're right Annie. There are still so many wonderful things to see in this old treasure trove.

I would love to know who all used this skate.

I envision an excited 6 year old sitting impatiently while his mom attaches this, and its matching skate, to his shoes. He's grining his six-years-old-with-missing-front-teeth grin and his mom is telling him to be still so she can get them buckled on.

Can you see him?
