2,200 WPA Horseshoe Courts

Between 1935 and 1943, WPA workers constructed 2,261 new horseshoe courts, and repaired or improved dozens more. The construction of horseshoe courts was part of the larger WPA effort to increase the number of recreational opportunities for Americans.

What do you think? Useful endeavors, or "godless communism!"?
