Thinker Thursday

In the 1870s, an invention called the pedespeed was developed.  The pedespeed was something you could strap on your legs.  Each leg would have strapped to it a wheel about a foot and a half tall.  With one on each leg, you could wheel through town.  Luckily, the much safer rollerskates were invented as a substitute.
