Soap Box Derby

(WPA poster, image courtesy of the Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division.) 

The WPA frequently made posters that promoted local activities & events; here, a soap box derby in Glen Ellyn, Illinois. 

Soap box cars are small racing vehicles that use gravity instead of engines. Hence, soap box derbies begin at the top of an incline.
