  • The Natatorium Park Carousel

    Before Spokane's Looff carousel was added to Natatorium Park, a Parker carousel operated there. There are no known pictures of this carousel.

  • Liberty Lake, Washington

    This Herschell-Spillman carousel was built around 1913, and originally operated at the Barbary Coast in San Francisco, California. It was moved to Washington where it operated at Liberty Lake Park from 1923 through the mid-1950s. After spending many years in storage, it was purchased in 1973 by the Henry Ford museum.

    The carousel was restored and put back into operation at Greenfield Village in Dearborn, Michigan, where it still operates today! A set of pictures of this carousel taken in 2006 can be seen Here.

  • Latton's Kiddie Land, Spokane, WA

    This Allan Herschell carousel was one of the rides at Latton's Kiddie Land, located on the corner of North Division and Euclid streets in Spokane. It operated there from around 1948 to the late 1970s or early 1980s. Following that, it operated for one year near a bowling alley on Division street before being taken out of service.

    The Latton family purchased this carousel directly from the Allan Herschell factory in North Tonawanda, New York.

  • The Playland Pier Carousel, Coeur d'Alene, ID

    This Herschell-Spillman carousel was recently on display at the International Museum of Carousel Art in Portland, Oregon.

    Wouldn't it be great if it found its way back to Coeur d'Alene some day?
