It happen to be both: 1st of May and Sunday, when we have been there. We arrived around the noon time and street (should I call it the-main-square?) was full with local ppl. They all were in holday dress, many kept glasses of wine (celebrated May 1st, I guess), others eat snacks. Carousel was rotating and parents waited for galloping kids. At 1 PM everyting stopped and town got empty in few single minutes . Domo locked its doors, cafe closed, carousel was switched off and people dissapeared. It's nothing as saint in Italy as siesta time! At 3PM town awoke once again.
This is in a city park in downtown St. Augustine. Someone found it in a barn in the midwest. They cleaned it up and reassembled it and it ran just fine. It only costs $1.00 to ride it.
Many carrousel's had benches to ride on, not just the horses and other animals that went up and down. I think this bench was just too cute.
The highlight of the Museum is an actual 1916 working Carrousel! Mom chose the lead horse to ride of course.
The photo's represent rides in packing crates, ready to be loaded for transport. Since the Herschell product was for fairs and carnivals, the product had to be easily transportable.
Notice how the ears are pinned back and the hoofs turned up? This is so there are fewer points to break off on a carrousel that was meant to be moved around.
