Vintage whimsical

One of my favorite things is Roadside Architecture.
That means restaurants shaped like coffee cups or hot dogs, trinket shops shaped like geese, etc.
I love the artistic bizarreness of it, the Americana, the whimsy.

In that same vein, I love old playground equipment, especially the ones shaped like animals, or monsters or something.
This image, from Charles Phoenix, is fun in every way.
I mean, if you're going to build a structure, why not make it a work of art?

I used to play on a playground toy that was shaped like the star trek space ship. (USS Enterprise...)
