I found this historic, two-stage Carousel while visiting Place Gutenberg, Strasbourg, Alsace, France. It is a fully functional carousel dating back to 1900: striped canopy, painted medallions along the rim, lovingly crafted wooden horses racing around the edge and one even on top of the canopy, like a weathervane.

Born and raised in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. Married with 3 daughters, 3 grandsons and 4 granddaughters. Retired elementary school teacher and travel consultant. Celebrated 50th wedding anniversary in 2012!
