Israel 1970’s: Psychedelic Slide

This is the third post in my series with retro photos from Israel: «Israel 1970′s». I’m not sure, but to me it seems that not only the music – but also the slides, were more psychedelic back in the 1970’s…

Edit: I just found some info on this slide and the neighborhood it’s in.

“Kiryat HaYovel was established in the 1952 to house thousands of Jews from Arab countries who fled their homes when the State of Israel was declared.

On March 29, 2002, Ayat al-Akhras, an 18-year-old Palestinian, blew herself up at the entrance of Kiryat HaYovel’s main supermarket, killing two people and injuring 28.[5]

The neighborhood’s claim to fame is “The Golem”, a whimsical playground sculpture set in Rabinovich Park. Commonly called “The Monster” (Hamifletzet in Hebrew), the sculpture’s three red tongues serve as slides. The Golem was designed by the French sculptor Niki de Saint-Phalle.[6]”
