Ode to Spring

Landscapers are pruning and planting, DQ is serving-up vanilla twists, and the Flying Horses are about to ride in search of the coveted brass ring.  Let the 2011 season begin...

Carousel Ad - MV Herald, August 11th, 1886 via OldTimeIslands.
Price to ride carousel in 1886, 5 cents - and today just $2...still a reasonable sum.

  1. Oh I love that Carousel! When I was a kid we would go to the Cape in the summer. We would visit my Father's cousin (she had a cranberry bog/farm) and then we would go to the Vineyard. Such great memories!!!
