The art of carousel creatures is not only beautiful, but fun and makes me feel like a kid again, especially if I get to ride.  To travel around the states just to visit carousels, would be a dream vacation.   This sea horse is  at the San Jose, California, Park and Zoo.

Built in 1890, the 89 foot wide Eden Palais carousel is one of the grandest carousels in the world.  Imported from Paris, France by Magic Mountain of Golden, Colorado shortly before Magic Mountain declared bankruptcy.     The carousel was purchased by the Sanfilippo Foundation for their Place de la Musique museum in Barrington, Illinois where it was restored to its current state.

Inspiration for how the old carousel my heroine's mother commissioned looks at the end of my novella, The Best Man in Brookside, after it's been renovated & updated with a steam engine. In real life, an Italian carousel.

Zebra, rabbit, & deer Carousel- Reminds me of the book Night Circus!

Mom loved to ride a carousel.and when the grandsons visited it was ALWAYS a good excuse to go to ride the one at the mall!

Merry Go Round!  Loved the carrosels.  We had a great one here in the mall but they took it out.  Probably sold it for the valuable return-- and to keep from spending.  No class here!!!

Make Your Way Around Britain: Out of season fairgrounds (non vintage?)

There's something peculiarly sad about out-of-season fairgrounds. Be it Coney Island or the British seaside. The garish colours.
