Vintage American wooden sledge with red metal runners. All original wood and steel. This is a Speedaway Gladding and has graphics on the seat and steering. The steering mechanism works well, just needs a piece of rope through or you can steer with your feet if you prefer.
The practical use of sleds is ancient and widespread. They were developed in areas with consistent winter snow cover, as vehicles to transport materials and/or people, far more efficiently than wheeled vehicles could in icy and snowy conditions. Early designs included hand-pulled sizes as well as larger dog, horse, or ox drawn versions. There are five types of sleds commonly used recreationally today: runner sleds, toboggans, disks, tubes and backcountry sleds. This is a runner sled.
