30 Seconds Of St. Anthony Falls

Kids sliding down St. Anthony Falls, Minneapolis on 105 degree day (1961)

50 years ago you could do this and adults wouldn’t yell at you. Not one person would be screaming…

Oh my God what are you kids doing, you’re going to get sucked under the Falls and die!!

Nope, they would take your picture.
