Carousels and Nostalgia

I have a thing for carousels; I think because they are generally old and have so much history. Most of them are really beautiful and the work that went into each of them is amazing. Although I'm not all that crazy about going around in circles, my kids love it and I like watching them ( and riding when everyone else I am with has had enough). Here are some pictures of our recent trip to Slater Park and our ride on the Looff Carousel circa 1895. For more pictures and history on this carousel, click here.

"To look backward for a while is to refresh the eye, to
restore it, and to render it the more fit for its prime
function of looking forward."
