Caption and history:
The Tickler was a popular ride during the early 1900s. The AYPE operated one that was built tightly next to the L. A. Thompson Mountain Slide and Scenic Railway. Many of the Exposition's Pay Streak amusement rides and attractions were positioned close to one another which may have been due to space issues.
