Abstract: Suppose that $ Y$ is the inverse limit of a sequence of absolute retracts such that each bonding map is a retraction. We show that $ Y$ is the almost continuous retract of the Hilbert cube. It follows that $ Y$, the cone over $ Y$, the suspension of $ Y$, and the product of $ Y$ with any absolute retract must have the fixed point property.
