Nice colours, it would have much better had you used a slow shutter speed to get movement in the carousel,

Thank you Dven and Moiral.
The reason there is no movement showing in this shot is that the Carousel was stopped at the time, as it was for most of the day.
The owners did allow me to climb all over it which I'm sure would not have been the case if they had been busy.

I bet it sounded as good as it looks when it did get going, Nick. Those steam organs have a unique sound. Glorious memories of a long-lost childhood (my first one, still waiting for the second to start)Smile

Lovely to see these nostalgic pieces preserved, a superb set of shots.

V1, for me. I being well into my 2nd Childhood, want to climb aboard. I too like V3 & V4 and would like to know what book the young lady
is reading, as the ride was not working in may have been the instruction book on how to start and run the ride. Eric.
What a colourful and nostalgic set of images Nick,thank goodness that there are people who lovingly restore our childhood memories GrinGrin V1 is my favourite Grin
