Vintage nostalgia is all the rage right now, and it’s easy to see why when you see something like the 1975 San Francisco Soapbox Derby video. Mike Haeg rescued this video from the SF MOMA archives and was awesome enough to share it with the world.

The 1975 soapbox derby was started to celebrate all of the artists living in San Francisco. The film Harvey Milk also reveals this 70s atmosphere in San Francisco.
