This model carousel is in the home of good friends in Virginia. It was originally built by a man that worked for the Cetlin and Wilson Carnival. It comes apart just like the real ones do and would all load into two wagons.
I performed from 1973 to 1995 with a couple years off in between. I did an aerial cradle act for three years, low wire as a clown, trained llamas, ponies, then lions and tigers for 15 years. I am now a firefighter, a member of the Circus Historical Society and an author of several circus and carnival related subjects.
