I've always been fond of traditional carousels. Some are real works of art.
"In a certain window of time, carousels were intricate, breathtaking
works of kinetic art... Today, the original antique carousels are
endangered beasts. At the height of the Golden Age of Carousels
(1890s-1920s), somewhere between 2,000 and 3,000 hand-carved,
hand-painted merry-go-rounds were spinning around the United States.
Now, there are only 150 of these antique carousels in operation. And
experts estimate that there are only a dozen left that could be restored
to their full glory."
