Flying Drainpipe

Your very own personal rocket! This image from 1957 shows a man demonstrating a vertical takeoff machine while sitting comfortably on top. Perhaps they should introduce Boris Rockets in London. Just think of a life with no more stuffy tubes, traffic jams or overcrowded trains. Although we can't see the Gherkin lasting long if city boys got their hands on these things.
