In the wake of the Great Depression and into the 1970s, America found itself with a new pastime: roller skating. At the height of The Golden Age in 1950, roller skating became the number one participatory sport in America with nearly 5,000 roller rinks and 18 million skaters—and Chicago was the epicenter of it all. Take a nostalgic trip to the glory days of roller skating to learn about the "rink rats"—the regulars at the legendary skating venues with names like The Elm, Arcadia, Riverview, Lombard, The Savoy, and others. Hear first-person accounts from skaters and view images and eclectic artifacts, from skating jackets and gear to competition medals, posters, and memorabilia. Inspired by the book by author and skater Tom Russo.
