Artist's Description

Taken on Jantzen Beach Vancouver, WA USA
The 1921 C.W. Parker Carousel The lone surviving ride from the days of the Jantzen Beach Amusement Park is the 1921 carousel designed by renowned carousel designer and innovator, Charles W. Parker. His so-called “Jumping Horse Carry-Us-All” revolutionized the industry and is widely recognized today as one of the most popular riding devices in the country. The C.W. Parker Carousel (or Jantzen Beach Carousel as it is often known) consists of 72 different “jumper” horses (with more horses in storage) at four rows across. It is lit by an amazing 1,350 lights and consists of 286 mirrors. The base is a large 67-foot diameter that can travel up to ten miles an hour on the outside steeds, making it the largest and fastest ride still in operation. Interestingly enough, the hand-carved horses are worth more if they were removed and sold individually than if the carousel were sold as a whole.
