Casual Friday: The Historic Carousel Goes Round and Round

Loretta reports:

Last time, I mentioned riding on the Carousel at the American Art & Carousel Gallery of the Heritage Museums and Gardens in Sandwich, MA, on Cape Cod. 

Here it is in motion, unfortunately without the wonderful carousel music.  Still, the video does give you a sense of how jewel-like these are, with their mirrors and decorations and beautiful painting.

Loved both the earlier post and this video. In keeping with the carousel spirit, here's a video and a bit of information on the 1913 Herschell-Spillman Carousel at my nearby and always a joy to visit, Greenfield Village:

And a great page with pictures from the National Carousel Association:

And it really is FUN to ride!
