Vintage Scooter Love

I really want a scooter someday. I know I'm not the only one with a love for scooters, so enjoy!

This lovely photo is 1 of 4 from Etsy shop RetrospectPhoto.
In 1946 Enrico Piaggio the son of founder Rinaldo Piaggio, coined the name Vespa (Italian for "wasp").
For more check out Vespa history and the timeline

1 of the many celebrities pictured with a scooter more recently is singer Duffy (who also happens to be one of my fav retro U.K.-based singers! )
