Early skis designed for sport and recreation were made from a single piece of wood, often hickory, with a leather strap to attach the ski to the boot. This pair of children’s skis was used by a member of the Murray family, circa 1925. The Murray family’s roots in Manitoba date back to 1815 when Donald Murray came to Canada with the Lord Selkirk settlers.
