Something Weird’s women’s roller derby,1950s style

The fine folks over at Something Weird dot com┬ábring us a video that really isn’t all that weird at all, but is cool to see. This is how roller derby was in the glory day of the 1950s. We’ve seen somewhat of a resurgence in the whole roller derby thing over the past decade. I don’t exactly know why. I can’t say it is a sport that grabs me, but it’s interesting to see the roots of this modern/retro trend, no?┬áSo here, in all it’s black and white glory is roller derby from the 50s!
