Roller skates from the past

3년 전

I was browsing through some websites to find roller skates to buy for my nephew when I come across this picture of rollers from 1905 or 1910 year and I burst into laughter. I mean this is a great innovation for that time but to me, it looks like there are two little bicycles on the feet. I don't know how stable are but they look awesome and I want to try them.

As I did some reading on this subject, obviously they were invented for health reasons for people to be more physically active and they were very popular back in the day.
