23 Cold War-Era Playground Rockets

During the height of the cold war in the early 80's you could find me on the playground of my elementary school, climbing on a rocketship similar to the 23 captured by photographer Lauren Orchowski.

These images were taken at various locations across the United States over a three year period—and I suppose they make a statement about our mentality during that time. Although, cold war or not—playing on rocketship monkey bars is always awesome. Hit the artist's website for the full gallery. [Lauren Orchowski via Boing Boing Gadgets]
