“In the autumn of 1910 two venerable nonagenarians, Alderman Thomas Fidler, & Mr. Richard Freeman, of Donnington Almshouses, were induced to be placed on roller-skates and to appear as notable personages at the Skating Rink.  

On Bank Holiday the Alderman was lying dead, and the other was present at the fete, enjoying himself as much as his ninety-seven years would permit.
