Zep. My carousel was in Cresent Park and is an historical carousel. The wood carved horses were really works of art and they had real horse hair tails. They were decoratively painted with gold gilt and some in pastel colors. The horses on the outside rim went up and down on brass poles that looked braided. The music was wonderful and the center of the carousel had hand paintings of beautiful scenes like English gardens and rolling meadows. We always went in summer of course. The park was down by the shore and there was a dinner hall where they served clam cakes and fragrant delicious chowder and water melon.
