Costumed skaters at skating rink


Black and white image of a group of young people gathered in the center of a skating rink, most likely Shute Park skating rink. Most are teens; the boys wear pants, white shirts and most wear ties. One young man in the far right of the group appears to be wearing an oversized bonnet and long dress. The young women wear a variety of costumes, some with split skirts and cropped tops, others with sleeveless white shirts and short, striped skirts. A large United States Flag hangs near the speakers from the ceiling, and smaller flags hang along the struts along the side of the room.
