I, too, remember taking lessons at Leggs. My instructor's name was Pancho. I remember that my mother made me an ice skating dress, pink with blue and silver ric-rac. I was awed by Phyllis and Harris Legg after seeing them for so many years in the Ice Follies at Winterland. I continued skating at the 48th Ave Ice Rink, but eventually gave it up. My only other skating was at the ice rink at Squaw Valley during summer vacations at Lake Tahoe. Those were the days!
