Soon, the winter of 2010 will be nothing but a memory. It's hard to believe 1960 was 50 years ago! This sled, spotted at a neighborhood antique shop, is exactly like the one my brothers and I had as children growing up in the '60s. Who knows, maybe it IS the same one - I didn't get up close enough to see any telltale marks (if we'd made any). Dad had a rocket bank, a park by our grandpa's house had a rocket for climbing...and then there was this sled. Yes, space was a major design influence of the 1960s.
