Artist's Description

Nikon D90 18-105mm
The jewel in the crown of Melbourne’s Luna Park is the Heritage listed War and Peace Carousel.

The largest and most elaborate carousel in Australia, the War and Peace Carousel was built in 1913 by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company (PTC) in the United States.

It was originally shipped to the long-gone White City amusement park in Sydney’s Rushcutters Bay, arriving by steamer in 1913. Melbourne’s Luna Park bought the carousel in 1923, just in time to cover it with 6000 lights for its grand reopening as the ‘New Luna Park,’ after its closure through World War I.
