Deeply tucked into Philadelphia's Fairmont Park there is a forty five foot long waxed wooden slide. Built in 1904, the slide is the last remnant of the old attractions at the recently revamped playground next to the Smith Memorial Playhouse.
People have probably broken a lot of bones on this thing. Riding down it on your burlap sack is like sliding down a bowling alley with children at the bottom instead of pins.
