My Questions about The Giant Roller Skate
When I came across this photo on the Web of a giant rollerskate
I asked the international skating community if any of them had
ever seen this skate and if it was really as big as it looked.
Reply from an Artist Who Grew Up In Mosquite
In May of 1994 I received more information about the
giant roller skate from artist and
long-time Mesquite resident Lucy Jean Kilhullen:
"Yes that roller skate IS as big as it looks. It is actually a car
(or more of a truck) that the owners drive around town in to advertise
their roller skating rink.
I grew up in Mesquite so I saw it almost daily. It is about the
size of an S-10 pickup truck and the height is somewhere between an
U-Haul moving truck and a 18 wheeler trailer."
