THE OLD WINTER CAROUSEL – TRACES OF THE PAST

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: TRACES OF THE PAST Y4-01


From Paula:

Traces of the Past is a recurrent photo challenge that happens every month, and this is the fourth year it has been running. Next month you’ll be able to participate in Traces of the Past in Black and White for one of the two Black & White Sundays. You are free to choose whatever traces of the past you can find. It does not have to be a distant one, or rich in history; it can be something personal, or it can even have a human form. Just make sure to post for it before next Thursday and to link to this blog. Wishing you all a special and happy Thursday!


The Winter Carousel at the Heritage museum was more than 100 years old. They had brought it to the museum from some other part of the country, then had carefully reassembled it. I’ve had the pictures for quite a while. Until a few days ago, I didn’t realize how many there were in the folder and how few of them I’ve processed. Since I haven’t been getting out much, this seemed a good a time to work on them.

So welcome to the Winter Carousel at the Heritage museum on Cape Cod. The carousel (also called a “merry-go-round” and both expressions mean the same thing) has its own working steam-driven calliope.

    1. I wanted one, too. If I could not get a WHOLE carousel, I wanted at least one horse. About 25 years ago was an old carousel being sold and Garry and I tried to talk the mayor and his people into buying it and installing it on the Commons in Boston.

      They said it was too expensive, but it wouldn’t have cost that much. What a pity. It was a GREAT old carousel with a real steam calliope. Politicians, bah.
