The horse depicted in this design, believed to be Flying Childers, has been taken from a painting of the infamous 18th century racing horse by James Seymour, 1702-52, 'Flying Childers', with groom. This is a folding umbrella.
Flying Horses Carousel-The carousel is believed to have been built 1876 by the Charles W. Dare Company of New York. It was part of a traveling carnival until 1879 when the carnival was forced to abandon the carousel in Watch Hill. Unlike most carousels, there is no wooden platform to support the horses but rather, they are suspended from chains. As a result, the horses seem to "fly" as the ride increases speed, hence the carousel's name.
The word "bitch" has never been so hot -(thought the tag line to this photo was funny too). I have fallen in love with Jesse in Breaking Bad

Interesting family story of momento mori. The photo on the left is the bloggers maternal great-grandfather, George. George had a twin sister that died in infancy. No photo was taken of her so to remedy that, they dressed George as a girl (which he looks pretty unhappy about) so they could ostensibly have a photo of the deceased daughter too.
