If so, you will enjoy these pictures of Sheffield ice and roller skaters.

To show that nothing is new, some of the pictures from Sheffield Archives show two roller skating rinks in the city more than 100 years ago.

To order copies of photographs, head to the Picture Sheffield website, www.picturesheffield.com, which also offers photographic gifts based on the collection. You can search using the reference numbers in the captions.
