Synopsis of Lunch Box
The late 1970's saw an explosion in skateboarding activity. The innovation of graphite wheels instead of clay or metal (which were unstable at best) and better board design made skateboarding a booming business and thriving culture. Skate parks opened where young daredevils could try out some rad new moves, but skateboarders were everywhere. On the sidewalk, in empty pools, in the streets, in dry sewage pipes, in the hallways of schools—every place had value to skateboarders. For some it was even a method of transportation. In 1977 Aladdin produced this metal lunchbox with matching plastic thermos, depicting several boarders ripping up the concrete with some especially bitchin tricks.
