An Example - Blueprint for a Dream
Our carrousel was built in Riverside, Rhode Island by the Charles I.D. Looff company. Just a few years before building our carrousel, Looff established a showcase carrousel at Crescent Park, near the site of his shop. This carrousel was equipped with a wide variety of carousel figures much as an automobile showroom is equipped today, allowing his customers to see, ride and choose their favorites. His workshop has long since been dismantled, but the showcase carrousel remains and has been recently restored.
As with Spokane's carrousel, Looff designed a building to house the carrousel. However, in the case of the Crescent Park carrousel, the building remains and has been recently restored! Here is some information about the restoration.
"The carrousel building designs of yesterday were as recognizable to the public as McDonald's Golden Arches are today."
