    Titles read: "Speed on Ice".

    Chicago, Illinois, United States of America.

    Various shots of men zooming around an ice rink as they compete in the National Indoor Speed Skating Championships. It's a close call between Vic Ronshetti (sp?) and Leo Preisinger (sp?), but Preisinger manages to overtake his opponent and win the race. Ronshetti falls over - it almost looks like he is knocked by Preisinger as he goes past.

    Proper spelling. Victor Ronchetti and Leo Freisinger. Victor is my grandfather and Leo is my Great Uncle. It\'s great to see this nearly 80 year old video of my family members. Thank you for preserving this wonderful piece of history.
