According to the Jane’s Carousel website, “Jane’s Carousel is a classic 3-row machine with 48 exquisitely carved horses and two superb chariots. It was created in 1922, the heyday of the American Carousel, by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company (P.T.C.) Designated as PTC. No. 61, it was originally installed in Idora Park in Youngstown, Ohio, then a prosperous steel-making city.” It now sits proudly at the base of the Brooklyn Bridge overlooking Manhattan. I did’t expect a carousel when I went to try and capture the sunset this day. Let’s just call this a nice surprise.
