Back in the Day When Slides Were Slides

Back in the Day When Slides Were Slides
Note that you can't even see the top of the slide and stairs.
None of those namby-pamby, wimpy 6 footers with covered stairs and pine chip surroundings!
Lloyd Park, Walthamstow, London. 1956.
Cool to see the London buses in the background. Must have been a parking spot for them.
Brought forward for the Vintage Photos Theme Park theme of "At the Playground".

Ha ha, good point about our current safe playgrounds! Plastic and chips today, but metal and macadam back in the day!

Christopher Robin became a man one blustery day on thirty-foot slide just north of the 100-Acre Wood. "Oh, bother!" said Pooh. "Who are those adorable children," said the old guy from California.
