Soapbox Derby

Soapbox Derby in Bloomsburg. Derby cars would start in front of R. D. Rhodomoyer (our member Cary Rhodomoyer's grandfather) Groceries. They would roll down East Street to 5th Street where the winner would be declared.

In the photo: man standing on the left is R. J. Rhodomoyer. The man standing on the right is Fred Betz, who was known for walking around town selling bananas, which he picked up at the plant on 7th Street. Early to mid-50's. #66-0003.
