Sunday, April 20, 1952: Strange mystery game


In this strip from the early 1950s, the kids are playing some bizarre game the origins of which being long lost to time. It appears to involve throwing several "horseshoe"-shaped objects (themselves artifacts from some activity or process now unknown to us) towards a stake stuck in the ground in an attempt to score a "ringer."

Judging from their progress, it seems likely that the kids must still be playing their game today.

  1. I still see horseshoe pitches in public parks. Usually right next to the lawn bowling greens.
