How many of you impossibly survived your youth despite doing fun things like this??
"Automobile pulling sleighs and toboggans in High Park, (Toronto, Ont.) 29 Dec. 1918"
Oh What fun! I'm sure there will be some comments on doing that these days.
Life was simple then.
If we hadn't survived, this page would be blank. The question is: HOW did we survive?
The answer is: By the laws of Nature; Only the strong survive. BUT, the laws didn't specify exactly what strength helped you survive. Could be odor. After all, the angel of death won't kiss you if you've been eating garlic. Come to think of it, no one else will kiss you either.
Thanks for the picture. Brings back great memories for me as I am sure it does/will for many of us.
When I was a kid in the 60s we would pull car hoods from the early 50s cars instead of a tabagon behind a P U truck. We could go pretty dang fast until my little brother broke his leg.
Also the Angel will avoid those who have just consumed Lutefisk--as will every other non-Norwegian--and even some of them will avoid that person.
It was great fun on our sleds so long ago! We usually used a C Allis tractor and tied the sleds with binder twine at staggered distance to haul more kids.Bud.
When I was just a youngster, My brother and I would hook up are horse to an old car hood and ride all day. We had a great time back then.
The year listed is correct as those licence plates are Ontario 1918 only style.
