Louisiana Daily Photo: Bill Yates Sweetheart Roller Rink

Bill Yates photographed the kids attending Sweetheart Roller Rink in Hillsborough County Florida for 7 months back in 1972-73.

The Ogden Museum Of Southern Art is hosting an exhibit of this work.

It is mandatory for anyone who has an interest in southern culture to attend.

There are other exhibits being shown as well including some crucial work by Howard Finster.
