The first roller skates

The first roller skates were invented in 1760 by a man named John Merlin. They had wheels on each of them . He showed people his invention when he came into an expensive fancy-dress party playing a violin and riding his roller skates. Unfortunately he crashed in a wall length mirror because he didn’t have any brakes.
