Hills Skates in Muswell Hill were a long time advertiser in R.a.D. but I can’t remember a great deal about them. The Bauer Turbo Roller skate which features so prominently here encourages my notion that their background was in eight wheels, not four.
I’ve just noticed one point of interest here:
Mapled Blank Deck with Concave, Blue Stained and Varnished 30″ x 10″ £14.95
Blanks in 1988? That would have been a very early example of a phenomenon which I normally think of as coming along later.
Or have I got that wrong?
