As many of you know, Kiddieland was the first park I visited for the book - and its closing was the impetus for my committing to write the book, to get the word out about vintage parks and their historic significance.
Give this article a gander. You'll learn about the age of this amazing carousel, and what makes it a special amusement park collectible.
The auction house says it could fetch a pretty penny. Well, if I win that Powerball by November 16 (I WILL win, just don't know when ...), I'll be throwing a whole bunch of pretty pennies at this one. And, should I win it, I'll be donating it to a deserving park that will house it well and take good care of it. That is my pledge and promise - you read it here, folks!
