What Goes Around, Comes Around
If you feel like a little cross-border shopping, a trip to the Carousel Centre in Syracuse, New York offers the bonus of a ride on this restored vintage carousel.
Carousel no. 18 was made by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company in 1909, carved and manufactured in Germantown, Pennsylvania. It has 42 horses, 38 of which move up and down. The lead horses, like those pictured here, are solid wood and weigh 225 pounds. All the colours, materials and details are faithful to the 1909 original.
