The above photos were all taken by us on Labor Day Weekend, 1989 at Great America Amusement Park located in Gurnee, Illinois (now called Six Flags Great America). This hand-carved antique carousel, built by the Dentzel Carousel Factory of Pennsylvania in 1910, was located at Fontaine Ferry Park in Louisville, Kentucky until 1969. The park (1905-1969) was permanently closed on it's first day of operations for the 1969 season due to rioting and vandalism (see story on the 'Carousel Trail' pages).
