1914 PTC #33 Carousel, Como Park, St.Paul, Minnesota, USA. One of the finest examples of the classic carved wood horse carousels in existence. The carousel has been beautifully restored and is kept in superb condition. The horses are all predominantly grey. The 30-ton carousel has a platform 50 feet across. © Steve Grooms.

Cafesjians Carousel, Como Park, St Paul, Minnesota, USA. Built in 1914, PTC model 33 was almost lost when it was put up for auction in parts in 1988. A husband and wife created Our Fair Carousel and began a rescue which saved the carousel intact. It was renamed for the major benefactor, Gerard L. Cafesjian, on its restoration and reopening and in 2000 moved to a new purpose built pavilion in Como Park. It has three Charles Carmel horses among 68 horses and two chariots.
