This 1895 Looff carousel was first placed in Fairbanks, Texas.... Through many travels, it found its way to San Diego, California in 2004, making its home in Sea Port Village.. I remember riding this carousel when it was located on the Santa Monica pier... It is as beautiful now is it was then... Dreams do take flight... -- COPYRIGHT NOTICE -- All work in this gallery is the original work of Linda Knorr Shafer.
