This beautiful carousel is within walking distance from me. It's one of the most famous ones in the country with rare hand-carved animals, NOT plastic resin.
Sixty-six beautifully carved figures designed c. 1895 by Charles I.D. Looff. The band organ by A. Ruth and Sohn, in neo-baroque style, is carved with moving figures. The finest surviving example of its type in America, the carousel was proclaimed the State Symbol of Folk Art in 1985. Designated as a National Landmark in March, 1987.
What a day and fun place to take pictures.
Happy Animal Wednesday!
