Cutler Shops & Swift Shoes, 1835

Here is an article from 1835 in Sherbourne, England where again we see rough, foul mouthed, lower class “blackgaurd boys” playing hockey. We see crowds watching on the shore. We also learn something interesting, that what we know as skates were called “swift shoes” and these sold at the local cutler shops in England.
