‘Beautiful vintage photo from National Geographic, by W. Robert Moore, of play in Korea c. 1931.

We have come to think of a seesaw as something to sit on. But this form, seen not just in the Orient but also in Victorian playspaces, is really about jumping. Its low profile to the ground removes some of the safety concerns that have grown up around ‘seated’ seesaws, and I’d like to see playmakers thinking about using these jumping boards more often.’
