It wasn't exactly Great Adventure, but ten times more 
charming.  This was part of a fair that was set 
up on Governors Island—with vintage French carnival
rides and carrousels (more about those next week)
that were steam-powered when they were
first built back in the late-19th and early-20th centuries.
These swings had red velvet seats: fun and elegant.

[Linking back to Ruby Tuesday and Our World Tuesday.
And it's the 1st of the month, so I've posted to my Paris blog.]


  1. This looks like a lot of fun, and a ride I would have tried.

  2. Fairs are such great fun!
