    That's a wonderful carousel Sandy. I need to go to the one in my city which is restored from the same ones I rode on as a child. Thanks for reminding me that I haven't done that and for sharing this beautiful one.

  13. This looks very fun for adults and children alike. I love the detail you have in your photos; they are alive. We have a very interesting carousel in Missoula with all hand carved and painted ponies.

  16. What whimsy, Sandy! One of the rides I never missed at Disney (and I had a resident's pass) was the Carousel! There is just something completely magical about them.

    I think I like the top photo best, but these all are great photos, Sandy.

  25. I'm also partial to the first photo. I absolutely LOVE carousels. They're full of warm memories and they're charming.

    Although, I used to work in a home for the profoundly retarded. There was a broken carousel that sat at the very back of the property at the edge of a wooded area. It was one of the lonliest sights... That one kind of broke me heart. I wrote a few stories about it while sitting on one of the horses.

    Anyway... as I was saying. Great photos. Fond thoughts did flood into my mind.

  26. Remembering childhood which was happy for some, perhaps a bit sad for others...
    Great images, Sandy.

  33. I lived in Connecticut for the first two years of my married life and had a son there. I traveled all over CT but don't remember seeing this merry go round. . . It is a real beauty! I am sure it has provided much amusement for young and old alike!
