the old lady & the shoe

A slide at Vilas Park modelled after the Old Lady & The Shoe children's nursery rhyme.

Looks like a magical place to play!

Chris~ I had not thought about this slide in ages until just a few weeks ago -- and now here you are with a picture of it. My sisters and I played on it many times growing up. They tried to demolish it in the late 80s, but a "Save the Shoe" campaign saw that it remained for generations to come. A local radio stations even had a parody after the Michael Jackson song, "Feed the World."

Thanks for the stroll down Memory Lane! ;)

I like the artwork on the slide - the kids must have had a blast painting it, and it was probably more fun to see your handiwork as you zoomed down the slide.
