Wooster Ltd. Sno-Bob, 1971

Summary

Winter snow brings unique opportunities for outdoor play. Sled contraptions like this Sno-Bob -- a sort-of bicycle on skis -- have been around since the mid-19th century. They found new popularity after the Beatles were spotted frolicking around on them in the 1965 movie Help!
