Building with Tires.
Text, drawings, and photographs show how tires, no longer usable for transportation, were assembled in a variety of ways to make swings, climbers, tunnels, and walls for a homemade playground. With the support of community representatives and a local high school class, a playground in Brockton, Massachusetts, was built in four days from tires obtained free from garages, junk yards, and tire companies. In addition to specific directions for joining the tires and assembling the tires to form different structures, information is provided on materials, cost, and safety considerations. (MKF)
