round and round
we are so lucky to have this right in our downtown area. Our riverfront park is very historical and this carousel if a favorite. I was happy to snap this quick shot as we were leaving the park for the evening and when I say quick I mean I was walking and snapping at the same time.
some information on the carousel:
Riverfront Park’s 1909 Looff Carrousel is on theNational Register of Historic Places and is one of America’s most beautiful and well preserved hand-carved wooden carrousels. Our Looff Carrousel proudly features 54 horses, 1 giraffe, 1 tiger, and 2 Chinese dragon chairs and still has a brass ring to catch.

the carousel was even on the antiques roadshow.
