Below are a few images of different carousels in the US and internationally. I will be adding to these carousels as time goes on. I plan to take the metro down to the Washington, DC mall and take a picture of our carousel soon. Enjoy!

Jane's Carousel in Brooklyn Bridge Park

I could not find any copyright on the website but the images and the text came from the Jane's Carousel website.

"Jane's Carousel is a completely restored historic Carousel made by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company (PTC #61) in 1922. It is a classic 3-row machine with 48 exquisitely carved horses, and 2 superb chariots. The wood carvings, often attributed to John Zalar and Frank Carretta, are among the finest of their kind. In addition, the scenery panels, rounding boards, crests, center pole and platform are all original to the Carousel. It was the first Carousel to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places. ..."
