PTC Carousel 1 by skyhorse

Currently unavailable for purchase

My “holy grail” – a stunning, fully restored, fully operation Philidelphia Toboggan Company carousel AND it’s right here in Melbourne !!!

I’ve loved the PTC carousels from the very first horse I ever saw – they capture all the fiery energy of the horse (and other animals they create) and also fire the imagination of the riders with the range of fantastical steeds to choose from.

If you live here, go see this stunning piece of art at Luna Park, St Kilda – go for a ride while you’re there :-D

    Really beautiful carousel – how wonderful that you can photograph it fully. The vintagew ones I recently shot were enclosed in wooden buildings with window openings. I realize that it protects them from theft and from the elements, but makes it more difficult to photograph. Great capture!

    This is a real treasure. So beautiful to behold.
    Carousels delight the eye and the soul, especially when they are as well preserved as this one.

  • Sassi, you got it in one – a delight for the eyes & the soul indeed! I may have to borrow that phrase :-D
