Exploring photos with the NOTL Museum: The Coasting Party
The Coasting Party.

We finally got enough snow for the young and the young at heart to enjoy some outdoor activities! Hopefully you had a chance to head out on the toboggan hill like this crew did in St. Davids in February 1910. The large toboggan in the middle looks to be holding seven kids! It may be less when they’re heading down the hill but wow, I don’t think they “make 'em like that anymore." The hill in this photo shows “The Coasting Party,” as it is labelled, and is possibly located at the bottom of the escarpment near Concession 2 and York Road.
