Roller Derby found a home in the San Francisco Bay Area following its Depression-era Chicago origins. An early television sensation, it faded to a modest existence in Los Angeles during the 1950s. Creator Leo Seltzer turned the game over to his son Jerry, who repositioned the traveling Bay Bombers from their home terrain of San Francisco to Fresno and everywhere in-between. In the 21st century, the game made an astonishing return not only in Northern California but also worldwide.

Illustrated throughout. 126p.

More than 300 photographs are presented in two sections. The first features images of children that the artist has known: being bathed or fed, laughing or crying with family members, posing with pets or mugging for the camera. The second section presents works from Friedlander’s years of photographing people on the street: children in parades, sitting in cars, reflected in storefront windows.

Noteworthy photographs include a pair of small girls holding a rattlesnake; a boy with a large frog and a small trophy; and a pair of small girls dressed like Queen Elizabeth considering Allen Ginsberg meditating in Central Park.

Measures 11×9.75. 203 duotone illustrations. 214p.
