Soap Box Derby 1952292 viewsRoseville Soap Box Derby 1952 at the Viaduct on Seventh Avenue. My Soapbox was the white one on the left, I won a third place trophy and a pair of strap-on roller skates. The Trophy was donated by Newark Commissioner, Stephen J Moran. The race was sponsored by the Roseville YMCA and the photo was taken by Jack Horn, He had a studio on Roseville Avenue near the railroad switching tower. The next year I won a larger second place trophy and a portable radio (Westinghouse, I Think).
