I'm over at Inkwell Inspirations today with an 1898 video by the Edison Film Company that shows sleighing in Central Park. It's silent, but lots of horse-drawn sleighs in action. You can check it out at Inkwell Inspirations.
I love research and my post, From Ice Slide to Roller Coaster, over at the Heroes, Heroines and History blog, is full of interesting images of what turns out to be the beginnings of roller coasters.
And if thrill rides aren't your thing, drop in and see what luxury awaited the pleasure-seekers of Catherine the Great's court after a day on the slides.
Hope to see you there.
