pix that could be filed as groups with the Mayor of Loughborough opening the Premier Skating Rink and the latest craze in Dundee is American Roller Skating ... perhaps it's the name of the rink.

There's something subversive about fancy dress perhaps because the wearer is not themselves for a bit.  It certainly appealed to Edwardian roller skaters.

Relaxed eleganceSara Pascoe is definitely a better roller skater (20:39) than Rachel Parris (not difficult) but she doesn't have the relaxed elegance we've often envied in roller derby skaters out of play.

Our calculation may be imaginative but at the beginning of last century a one hour lesson in fancy skating would have been around £36 in today's money ... sounds about right.

Roller skater having a restThe day after we'd bought a helmet for roller skating we came off backwards big time banging our head hard.  Sixteen year old Sid Hudson skateboarding in Bury St Edmunds wasn't so lucky.

Kandice by Jenny Sampson (detail)A tintype was a mid 1800s photo process which makes just one positive and usually mirror image.  Popular as it could be processed quickly, a sort of Victorian Polaroid.  The subject's participation is needed for the long exposures suiting snapper Jenny Sampson who used the process to make pix of female and non-binary skateboarders in US skateparks.

BBC documentary 'United Skates'BBC doc United Skates has stunning (often synchronised) rolling from black American skaters.  It also has racism, gangs, developers and closing down roller rinks but stay with it as the ending is encouraging.

Suffolk Roller Deby skater Dr Astrid CoxonIn a lifetime of laughter and tears we have noted that most people like what they're used to and that usually means clichéd predictability so when the Blue Thunder Rollers renamed themselves we were impressed they resisted Suffolk Punchers or such like.  Recently Suffolk Roller Derby skater Dr Astrid Coxon has revived the draught horse allusion.

Alicia Rodgers - Week WanScot Alicia Rodgers and her mates bought roller skates after seeing Whip It (they are not alone) but then omitted the next step learning to skate.  Alicia is now learning to skate for a charity live performance on 25th May.  She's doing better than us (we can't shoot the duck off skates) and thankfully she had gained a helmet by the latter part of week two.
