We haven't even had Winter here in Southern California. It's mid February and all the Azaleas are in full bloom, Daffodils are up, Red Bud trees are misty clouds of pink. Won't those of you in the East send us some rain and cold weather?

Great stuff... life in pictures.

This was where?

The carousel building is a Miller & Baker design. You could build these from their plans, or you could order it prefabricated, or Miller & Baker would come in and build it for you.

It looks like a PTC was in this building for a time, but by the end had some smaller carousel. What happened to the PTC?

Enjoyed reading your history and looking at the photos of each transition. Thanks!

Looks like a Looff

Yes it does, plus the organ looks like a 67er Ruth & Sohne

All you have to do is see the horse in the center to know it's a Looff

Your screen must be larger than the one on my laptop, yes that's 1885-95 vintage prancer. The middle row horses on the Broadway Flying Horses were like this before the 1914 conversion

Feltman era as well

I think I spy a band organ

The organ is an A. Ruth & Sohne Model 34

I’m thinking PTC/EJ Morris?

Looks like it might have been Hoppyland, Hoppalong Cassidy's amusement park in Venice, CA., though the rounding boards are not right. It also had those style horses and a sea dragon. Zoller PTC. Allan a Herschell Wet Boat in front.

Wow, those poor horses are just out there swinging in the sun and weather...
