Speed skating finals

Here’s a series of photographs from the February 7 1934 Toronto Daily Star, featuring speed skaters who were competing in an event at Maple Leaf Gardens.


A couple of the athletes mentioned in the caption for these photos have Wikipedia entries:

  • Kit Klein (1910-1985) went on to capture two world records and skate in the Ice Follies.
  • Lela Brooks (1908-1990) had broken six world records by the age of 17, and eventually set 17 world records and win 65 championships.
