hero 2 main Isle of wight day

An award winning inventor, this hero lived and worked on the Island at White Cottage in East Cowes, though his legacy can be found in Ryde. You might spy him on your travels to or from the island…

This man put a one  tin inside another and blew air down between them……..He made a “momentum curtain” what on earth is that? And what on earth would you do with one if you had one?

He was very interested in skirts and developed a particular type.

He never really got the credit due to him, his was a bit disappointed , but not that Boovered.
