However, I recall being in one of the Niagara Falls towers back in the 70’s with my mother, being a teenager at the time, and begging my mother to buy me a pair of gaudy silver hoops one of booth vendors was hawking.
Why? Everyone else in school had them, or gold ones. And everyone at my school was white, white, white.
So, how’d THEY get the franchise on the hoops? :-)
