Old Skating Books

My dance partner was loaned some old and slightly fragile books on skate dancing written in the 30's through the 50's. To preserve this historical data, we scanned the books and put them in PDF format. The books were originally the 5 1/2" by 8" size, but the scanning process changed them to 8 1/2" by 11" format. this makes them a bit easier to read. The books are in PDF format and can be downloaded by clicking on the cover. Note that since the size of the PDF's range between 5 and 20 megabytes, you should be using a DSL or Cable internet connection or some other high speed connection to download these books.

To download a book, the best bet is to right click the book cover and select "Save Link As" (Netscape/Mozilla) or "Save Target AS" (Internet Explorer). You will get a dialog box telling where to save the file. You can then open the file locally using
