The House of Steam Logo Art By Steve Mannion

Hello All

Well by July 20th 2007 The House of Steam will be One Year Old!!

The archive currently has over 170 entries spread across 400 searchable categories.

In order to celebrate our accomplishment I have assembled a Year One Celebration video.

I would like to thank Sophie for all her help and support with the archive.

I would like to thank all the people I have been in contact with (especially via email) who have contributed photos, stories and most importanty time.

To me The House of Steam is an open ended community driven archive. What it does and where it goes is up to you so keep contributing. It is only a matter of time before The House of Steam becomes an important peice of skate history. It is not if it is when. I recall something sprayed on the outside wall of The Barn after it was all closed up, it said…The Time is Now.

so true.

(another) Ass kicking photo from WIG

Couple reasons for posting this photo…First a photo with Jay wearing a helmet is as elusive as a photo of Big Foot. I’m not sure but this one could have been altered by photo shop to show him wearing a helmet. Second reason was to show how close those fricken beams were that went across the flat bottom were. People like Jay and Captain John Ballon looked like they were gonna smack em every time they skated. I do believe a BMX rider had a real Head Cracker incident.

Anyway nice camera work Wig! Splitting the beams and capturing the elusive helmeted Senor Henry.

Keep it coming

So beside being a classic photo the reason I posted this is because I hae had more then one request to post the Ken Sigafoos designed stickers for Cheap Skates especially the  “I skated cheapskates  long cold winter of 88” So if you got one scan it and send it in if its stuck on something send a picture….and Ken if your out there send some pics and art work….
