Lighthouse Point, New Haven, Connecticut. A lovely folk art carousel, built in 1916 and painstakingly restored in the 1980’s. On the National Register of Historic Places. We lived in New Haven for many years and brought our kids, and then grandkids, to it regularly, but now we are too far away for me to add a photo.
From the website:
“It was assembled in 1916 by the Murphy Brothers in their Savin Rock workshop.
The carved animals were the work of the Murphy Brothers, Charles I.D. Looff and Charles Carmel. Few carousels are bigger. It boasts 72 figures mounted on 20 ranks on a 60-foot platform. There are animals aplenty. Jumping horses are set four abreast alternate with horses standing three abreast. Two exotic dragon chariots charge from opposite sides of the platform. Nearby strides a camel. Paintings of the New Haven Harbor – steamboats, sailing ships, barges, lighthouses and mermaids add to the attraction.”
