Evidently roller skating is all the “new” rage according to our authors. Since I was a teen throughout the 1970s, I can say I went to the rink a few times. However, by the time this book was published, I would have said that hanging out at a roller rink was not that cool. (Full disclosure: I was never cool, so don’t use me as a barometer.) This book was a lot of fun to look at especially since I think I went to high school or college with most of the people in this book or their doppelgangers.
My particular favorite picture is of the young lady skating in a swim suit and the caption says she probably was a girl scout. Now I am curious why she was “probably” a girl scout? Was it the swimsuit? the skates? the hair? I need to know.
