Propeller-driven Sled, ca. 1914
The high-powered, propeller-driven sled pictured above would be one of those winter toys that are probably not suitable for children. This aerosled (or aerosleigh) seems to have attracted a few onlookers sometime around 1914, when the photo was taken. Aerosleds do not appear to have been that commonly used in Canada so early on, and the first notable Canadian aerosled was not built until 1922 by a 15-year-old Joseph-Armand Bombardier (notable, perhaps more as a result of the inventor).
