It's got me Stumped: it's a bit Silly, Bats in fact, it Creased me up. It's a bit Wide for a scooter, the saddle would be best for those with No Balls and Shin Pads recommended. I would Leg it to have a go,  Bales of fun, but perhaps not stylish enough to Bowl a Maiden Over.

Made by S & P the famous crane makers, still going: there's an new S&P crane up the road at Deptford Creek which recently replaced the ancient S&P.
Just remember: as one door closes behind you, another slams in your face

Do you suppose someone collects rollers? I bet they do. There is still a flat earth society.

 Silly Mid Off (topic) right there!  ;D (check its position in the topic....)

 There is indeed a National Collection of Motor Rollers, or at least there certainly used to be, at Walton Hall, Linton, Stanford-le-Hope, Essex. I think the collection is still there, but hasn't been open to the public since 2010. Alas, reading between the lines, I think this was another case where the press & suchlike so ridiculed the place, that the owner shut the doors & now only keeps them for himself.

Oh my goodness what have I started ? Hopefully we will go off through bad light and the topic can go off into the long grass - or indeed cow corner ( TMS followers will get it )  ;D
