About this object
Ice skates; a pair of ice skate attachments for boots, each consisting of a wooden baseplate with leather straps and a steel skate blade. The toe strap is missing.

This pair of skates is homemade and well-loved and the engineering works would have been a perfect place for making objects such as these. The Otago winters surely would have been an enjoyable time of year.

For more information about the Hayes family and Hayes Engineering Works, which is cared for by Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga, see our website.
