Carousel on the Mall

While we were in Washington, we visited this 
Carousel on the Mall 
Built in 1947, this one of a kind carousel is nicknamed the traveling machine and 
is the only working carousel in Washington, D.C.







The complete history about the carousel can be found here.
It is quite interesting!

  1. Wonderful photos Debbie. They gave me flash backs to my childhood. Every nation has a dark side to it's history including mine.

  2. Hello, it is a pretty carousel. I did not know that they moved Baltimore's Gwynn Oak carousel to DC. Enjoy your day!
