"Leisure" Enters the Language - Breathing Space Blog

"Oceanside amusement parks such as Coney Island catered to thrill seekers of the day.  Hair-raising rides and games of ring toss with Kewpie-doll prizes were new "leisure time" activities -- the phrase was coined in 1907 -- that beckoned after the workday began to grow shorter." 
       Carol Strickland, Civilization magazine, May/June 1995
