Rain mixed with snow did not dampen the enthusiasm for riding this carrousel, found in the 17ième arrondissement, next to Métro Villiers... The children were with parents and grandparents on this Saturday afternoon.

I do not have a name for this carrousel, but with the help of some friends I have begun to notice the rotation of the merry-go-rounds. This one is counter-clockwise and you can take a look at the others I have featured: here, here, here, here, and here. It is said that the German mechanisms, often found in the Paris carrousels, were patented to run counter-clockwise while those in the United States usually rotate clockwise. The jury is still out on this... more research to come.
