The Looff Carousel
This is a detail shot of a 1906 vintage carousel, one of only 17 machines created by Charles I.D. Looff for amusement parks all over the country. Only 10 of these carousels are still in existence today.
The carousel has 62 handcarved animal rides and wooden chariots. No nails were used in the construction of the animal rides; they were also completely made out of wood and inlaid with Austrian crystals.
Taken at Shoreline Village, Long Beach, California.
