#TBT 1929 • #Badgers and their plush passengers prepare to plunge down #UWMadison’s toboggan run onto Lake Mendota.⠀ ⠀ The UW Toboggan Club built a run from Observatory Hill to Lake Mendota in 1886. A new wooden run opened in January 1911, which was 600 feet long, with an additional 600 feet cleared out onto the lake. @wisco_hoofers replaced the wooden structure with a concrete chute in 1933, which was decommissioned in 1939 to make way for Elizabeth Waters Residence Hall. ⠀ ⠀ 📷: @uwmadarchives
