Thursday Challenge - Shoes

The Thursday Challenge this week is "Shoes" (Boots, Sandals, Dress Shoes, Wooden Shoes, Stiletto Heels, Horse Shoe .....)

So here is my contribution. This is a picture of the Shoe or Boot House at the Kamala Nehru Park in Mumbai, India.  Probably based on the nursery rhyme "There was an old woman who lived in a shoe".
Great fun to climb in and out of it (as kids of course!).

  1. Great fun I'll bet. The nursery rhyme originated in England and refers to King George and members of parliament. The King had too many MPs just as we have today.

  3. I adore this kind of thing -- the whimsy of artists and town politicians -- to erect such an interesting playground!

    @Mark Butler and Bagman - it's become an iconic symbol of Mumbai and I think every kid who lives there has played in it.
