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.
