A few of the horses on the carousel. Since they face the public as the carousel turns, the right sides of all of the carvings are more ornate than the left sides.

Backstory and Context
The carousel became very popular and when Natatorium Park closed in 1967, the carousel was put in storage with the goal of returning to active use. It reopened in Riverfront Park in 1975 and remains one of the most popular attractions at the park.
