2010.1.372, 977.1.766d, and 984.1.130



This toboggan is from around 1950 and has a blue and yellow cushion tied to sled with rope.  Early toboggans were used to transport people and goods across the snow and later used for recreation.  Toboggans are different from sleds in that it has no skis or runners on the bottom, they sit directly on the snow.
