Once Upon a PlaygroundThe result is a haunting time capsule showing a rapidly vanishing part of our country's cultural heritage Whatever the playgrounds of your childhood looked like the gorgeous photographs in this book will transport you back in time and remind you of just how important play can really. Very neat book It was interesting to see how play euipment progressed over the decades I can definitely see why some of that early stuff is no longer used The catalog pages that accompany photos of some of the euipment are a nice feature Even though it dates to 1975 a lot of the playground structures featured toward the end of the book were familiar because they were still around in the 80's Some of the photos reminded me of a playground that I used to freuent as a kid I used to drive past it occasionally and one day all the old slides were replaced with modern euipment It was sad to see that a piece of my childhood was gone I take my daughter there now and it was recently redone again I'll be to be sure to take plenty of pictures of her at the playground
