Wheels on a suitcase, whoever thought of them?

SuitcaseModern inventions are at times just taken for granted.
In the days when travel was glamorous and only the select few could fly or afford to, suitcases were carried and generally not by the traveller. Because this is what they were: travellers and not tourists.
So now we all ‘carry’ our own cases and the result is that someone comes up with the idea of little wheels, so that airports are like shopping malls complete with one’s own trolley.They are also almost all now a regulation size and will have none of those fancy labels stuck on the leather with the names of sleek hotels in Cap d’Antibes.They are also inevitably not leather, nor do they carry a suit.
Instead they may well have attached someone who wears their hat on back to front, shorts with massive pockets, a shirt that looks like a paint tin has exploded on it nearby, leatherette sandals,metalwork within the body ( of the person, not the case ) and on the way back what they call a tan, but is in fact third degree burns.
