Parker Carousel
Burnaby, BC
This Parker Carousel was built in 1912 and is installed at the Burnaby Village Museum. It was originally located in Texas where it toured for two years with the Lone Star Circus. In 1915, it was shipped back to the factory and rebuilt. It is believed the carousel went to either California or Washington after that. In 1936, it was moved to Happyland in Vancouver, BC. When Happyland was demolished in 1957, the carousel was moved to Playland. That amusement park was also demolished and from 1972-1989 the carousel was installed outdoors and put away each winter. In 1989, the carousel was sold to the Burnaby Village Museum. This carousel features 36 jumping horses, four standing horses, and one chariot. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2.
