  Here they are Bob Rudd's iconic Jockey Scales. How many people have sat on these?

I remember being weighed on those as a little girl.

My Mother wouldn't go on these. She would say " He's not going shout my weight out so everybody knows"

Bob Rudd was my mothers dancing partner.

He never shouted your weight,just gave you a ticket with your weight printed on it.

They are in the History shop. A few weeks ago they were on display on the ground floor.
