Description
Caption: "The Chutes, S.F," c. 1905. View of the Fulton Street Chutes, a 350-foot water slide. Boats or toboggans careened down the slide into a man-made lake at the bottom. Such "chutes" were very popular throughout the U.S. and Europe at the turn of the century. The Fulton Street Chutes operated from 1902-1907 as part of an amusement park area that also featured the "Circle Swing Flying Machine" (also visible in the photograph), a theater, bar, merry-go-round, and a zoo.
