Who doesn’t love a carousel? It brings forth memories of times past and lazy summer fair days. Allan Herschell certainly enjoyed them and other amusement park rides. He was a partner in the Armitage Herschell company. This company was one of the area’s first carousel companies, and Allan starting working for them in 1873. He would go on to work for Herschell-Spillman Company.
The Allan Herschell Company shipped carousels all over the world. His company was known for its quality rides, and they were sent throughout:
- United States
- South Africa
They did so well they produced more hand-carved wooden carousels than any other company. Each carousel had beautiful horses that were simple yet elegant. Over time they produced over 3,000 of these carousels.
