Circa 1968
this photo of the merry go round, circa 1968, is from
my mother's photo collection. The back of the photo says "The Harjulas, Curtis, Cyndy, Jim & Grandma at Pontrilas"


Circa 2007
this photo of the merry go round, circa 2007, is from
my collection. You can see the metal bars are showing their age, and the boards are starting to rot, but with a good push it still went fast enough to impress my children. Now imagine 4 or 5 kids inside pushing. We would hang on to the slender metal rods, lift up our feet, and fly!"
