Roller Derby Skates with Case. Circa 1948

245.00

These skates, belonging to "Babe", are in an Oaks Rink carry case. Given that the case is covered with stickers from other rinks from around the Pacific Northwest, we can only assume that "babe" was one of Portland's early roller derby queens. If there is any doubt as to this girl's bad ass moxie, the sticker from Roll Arena in Everett declares, "Like Hell Its Yours, Put It Back"! Nice girls from that era wouldn't have such un-lady like stickers.

The skates were made by the Chicago Roller Skate Co and are patented 1914. The wood wheels, made of maple, are patented 1943. The toe stops, first manufactured in the early 40's, are an after market add on.
