It's the one on the Embankment - my fave in London; from David Wallis & v trad. Proper organ music, classic paintways, etc, etc. :)

I've never noted the makers of carousels I've photographed - but looking back through photos tagged "Carousel" I think my pictures of the black horses might have been the same maker. They certainly look like some Helen took.

Do you know much about the subject Hildegard?

Nah - just a fangirl.
David Wallis own, rather than manufacture rides & not being steam-powered, this is just a trad-style ride rather than the Real Thing. Not that I care; the horses have names, the colours are good modern equivalents of the old stuff, they play trad style music & every kid on there had a huge smile.
What more does one need? :)

Gael - only the fact that I'd just swallowed saved my keyboard from coffee spray. ;)
A carousel where the horses are named Foucault, Irigaray, Cixous, Krell, Dastour, etc? We can run with this one - call the ride "The Eternal Return of the Same", maybe have a chainswing called Spinoza... Hall of mirrors has to be "Camera Lucida"...

that's today's displacement activity sorted then ...
big shout out for Baudrillard's Disneyland for starters ...

Don't forget the famous Chez Wittgenstein Casino, featuring live shows in the Adorno Lounge, & the Phenomenological Funhouse for the young & young-at-heart...

Going with the Disney theme, and to prove that I'm a good post-colonialist, "It's a Small World" could have boats named after Homi Bhabha, Edward Said, Ngugi waThiong' o, etc

The Haunted House would be a bit full wouldn't it? Theorists seem to be dropping like flies these days. Maybe theorists don't decompose, they just deconstruct ...

Madame Sadie Plant, Futurologist, reads your palm, Mme Anna Powell, Surrealist, reads your elbow...
The famous Austrian knife throwing act, Erwin Schrodinger, performing blindfold, with his assistant encased in a paper box... and of course, for the more adventurous there are the white knuckle rides, like the existential rollercoaster - 'La Nausée'...

I concede defeat. You are a high wire aerialist to my earth-bound circus dwarf. This has been very good revision for me though ; )

Now that's a mean trick - you've gone & populated a whole theme park memory palace for me & left me to wander it alone. ;)
Ho hum - a trip to Alton Towers might exorcise it...

This has inspired me to tackle an essay on Post Modernism!
If it all goes pear-shaped I'll know who to blame ; )
