Emporium Roof Slide, San Francisco, 1968

San Francisco’s Emporium department store, built in 1896,  featured an assortment of rooftop entertainments from the 1940s through the 1980s.   The rooftop slide was installed in 1968.  The Emporium closed for good in 1996, but is still remembered fondly.  

More stores should have slides, yes? (thanks, Susan!)
