This carousel is absolutely gorgeous! Great pictures! We had a lot of fun at the 1902 Parker Carousel in Abilene, KS. http://www.heritagecenterdk.com/parker_carousel.html


Why do they spell it with two r's? Interesting. I love antique, hand-carved carousels - so gorgeous.

Dominique King

That looks like a great carousel, too. I'm so glad to see so many of them still in use today.

I have no idea about the alternate spelling, the dictionary simply listed the two-r spelling as an alternate...although I've always seen it with just one "r" elsewhere.

Our hometown historic carousel, St. Louis Carousel, is in Faust Oark located in St. Louis....it was first used in 1929!
