Rebuilding the Past—A Portal to the 1950's

The Jamison Moon Rocket !

26 feet of space age awesomeness !  Back from a time when kids were allowed to play all day on dangerous steel cages and came home cut up and smelling like hot rusty metal... ahh the good old days !  There are several different styles of big rocket ship "cold war" playground equipment... but this one has the perfect curves and lines that make it an iconic sculpture.  There is a video at the end of this entry that I took just before we started dismantling it for moving down to ghost town.  In the video - it sits in it's original spot where it was installed in 1964. One of the pics below shows the guys installing it back in the day.
