MOA Galleria - Old Towne Mall Carousel

Torrance, California - circa 1970s

Here's an old postcard of the beautiful and popular carousel ride that sat in Old Towne Mall for many years! Remember when nearly every shopping mall had one? Good times. I know there are a few around that still do, but not nearly as many as there used to be. None of the malls around me here in metro Detroit have them anymore, yet back in the day most did up until about the 1990s.

There's a nice one in the Maplewood mall in Maplewood, MN (Northeast suburb of St. Paul). It has to compete with the Park at Mall of America....

I've never ridden it because I get motion sick. Yes, on a merry-go-round. :-P

Carousels are on their way back in. Westfield just put one in a while back in their Westfield Solano in Fairfield, California.
