Do You Know What These Are?

If you show a picture of these to anyone over the age of 30, there's a good chance they can tell you what they are. Anyone under the age of 30? Well, let's just say they'll have some spirited guesses but nothing accurate.

Do you have fond memories of roller-skating? Let us know!
