It’s the 110th birthday of the Looff Carrousel, at Riverview Park in Spokane. We gave some nice facts about the animals on the ride, the history of the ride and where it’s been installed. Looff is the guy who built the first carousel for Coney Island, so this one is extra-special. The horses are all hand-carved and lovingly restored. This page was easy to pull together, thanks to the city parks and rec folks, who have documented all this so carefully on their web site.
