Well, once I had seen the first lot of motor scooters, it sensitized me to the sight…and I found more as I went along. These were back in the yellow entry hall. I can recognise the genre – the English visitor to the show would have had a ball with these.
If you are going to be deliberately foolish in a particularly British sort of way, why not burn the back of your legs as you do it?
Or become terrifically fashionable while you do. Stripped of my sarcastic remarks, this is actually a very nice looking scooter.
And then there’s the full on Tommy/Quadrophenia version. No snippy captions with this one as the total picture says more than I could write. The only thing I have to note is the depiction of the Union Jack with the scooter parked on top. Poms scorn Americans for taking pride in the Stars and Stripes, and then they do this…
