Lake Harriet Toboggan Slide
As the heat continues to burn grass and crops this summer, I’ll provide cool respite on the edge of Lake Harriet. Fred Perl, the park board’s forester, took these photos of the Queen Avenue toboggan slide at Lake Harriet in 1914.
Check out the canoe racks that line the shore.
The views from top and bottom are cool, but they don’t show all the work that went into building this slide. You can only appreciate that from a side view.
Feel any cooler?
