Sometimes It’s in Your Own Backyard ( figuratively!) Winged Skates

Searching for remnants of the past while driving along forgotten roads and vanishing towns, we often find surprises.But you don’t have to always travel far from home to find memories. This sign still stands upright over a building where many Memphians spent a good part of their youth. I couldn’t resist posting it. For me it was metal clamp skates on the sidewalks of Manhattan. A group of us would race down the block and the noise muffled the traffic. No wonder so many doormen chased us!
