• Short Summary

    A man roller-skates before the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Road Skating! In Berlin, too, and on asphalt, for the skates, though they look like ice skates, are a new type, running on small rollers."

    Great shots of a man roller-skating along the road leading away from the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. He performs several turns, pirouettes and spins as a few civilians and policeman stand watching in stunned silence. The skates look more like roller blades than roller skates, with a line of small wheels running along the length of an ice-skating blade on the boot.
