    This is so brilliant, I love the weekend, when LOC uploads. L ooks like they nicked a mast, jib and main off aboat somewhere, and strapped a few 2 x 4's and pram wheels under it! Awesome, so glad to find this!

    Not pram wheels. The fork holding each wheel is clearly from the front of of a bike. I've read about these, but seeing a phot is nice.

    This is about 1915. Of course, these devices only worked going downhill and with strong winds. In the winter, you took the wheels off and put pontoons on it and put it on the ice. LOL. Look like older teens rather than children
