Rubbish Tuesday - Hampton Carousel

(click on photo to enlarge)
Who doesn't like a carousel? This one was built in 1920. Pretty awesome isn't it?! Hard to get pictures of it all since it is tucked in safely in a teeny, tiny enclosure. I love the painted panels too. I had the boys take a ride so I could get some pictures. Then I caught them maneuvering from horse to horse while the ride was going. Boys will be boys I guess.

  13. Yep, as the old saying goes, "You can dress 'em up, but . . ." Applies equally to boys as to maybe others, too. ;-)
