These fellows are about to take another run on Sykes’ Slide on a winter’s day in 1927. Located on the south bank of the river near 33rd Street, the slide offered recreation to more than one generation of Brandon youngsters. 5‘ Schools arranged for at least one toboggan party a year for their classes, but obviously the use of the slide was enjoyed by other than school kids. We can name G. Baldock at the left. Don Graham, head waiter at the Prince “Eddy", is the chap in front.

Ice fishing on the Assiniboine is another sport popular with Brandon families. This photo of an outing of two families was taken in 1974.
