Hi, I am Hans Brinkel from the Netherlands/Europe. not sure or this mesage is in the right topic? I recently bought a pair of antique roller skates or roller skis with 2 wheels. (My guess it is made between 1890-1920 period) It is marked Automobile skate , extension 9 to 12 inch, Pat apld for. Could it be possible that his is made by the C.C.M. company? I see advertisements for ice skates, but not roller skates so far.(besides modern ones) Please see attached files. Already many thanks for your respons, Regards, Hans (p.s i do also have a pair made by automobile cycle skate/ pat'd oct 1905/JOHN JAY YOUNG/New York, USA)

Hi Hans,

I know nothing about these, but the link is to a book showing the CCM Automobile skate (1906), which was apparently a standard ice skate:


I checked Patents for the Canada Cycle & Motor Company, there are 47 recorded, none like this (bicycles and traditional skates only), though Pat. Applied for, doesn't necessarily mean Patent granted, and a provisional patent wouldn't be published if not granted.

A couple of interesting timelines I came across whilst looking:



Sorry, can't help more than that.

Best regards,

Adrian

Hi, Sorry, I should have checked.

It's a Google book.

The book is : "Lace Up: A History of Skates in Canada" By Jean-Marie Leduc, Sean Graham.

The search term was "Automobile Skate". I can't take a screen shot, sadly, as there is a limit to the number of times you can view the book on Google.

Best Regards,

Adrian

Hi @Hans Brinker

The above information come from the website of a member here, Wing your Heel. He may know more.

With credit to Wing your Heel, I like this picture, mainly for the caption 'In the Year 2000' (En L'an 2000). Those appear to be electric skates...

The Road Skate above was invented by Augustus Nichols Lindsley of New York, though it was also patented at least in the UK, Austria and Canada.

Here is his improved road skate


He was also inventing Shades for Gas Lamps. A man of his times ...


A patent search just for the term 'Road Skate' shows there were lots of patents for inline type skates from at least 1894 onwards. I honestly don't have time to search them all, but the link is here if you'd like to do so:


Type Road Skate into the second 'Title or Abstract box.

On the result list, there are two sorting boxes at the top. Sort by 'Publication Date' in the left box, and 'Ascending' in the right box. Now they are in date order, but you'll need to do this again every time after looking at a patent (it's rubbish!)

Choose a Patent, click on 'Original Document' on the left hand menu.

At the top of the image, there's a toolbar with a box saying something similar to "1/8 Bibliography". Click on this to choose the document pages, Drawings is probably what you want.

Anything interesting you can download as a .pdf using the 'download' option on the right of the toolbar.

Happy Hunting,

Best Regards,

Adrian
