This rounding board
is known to be from the Illions Supreme Carousel which originally
operated at Long Beach, Long Island, NY in 1927.
Supreme Carousels were built in the mid 1920's. Two of them were
initially installed at Coney Island, NY; one at the Prospect
Hotel in 1927 and the other under Bob's Coaster in 1926.
The third machine, which this rounding board was a part of, was
originally installed at Long Island, NY and a few years later the
machine was returned to Coney Island in the 1930's where it was
operated by McCullough at Surf Avenue
between 15th & 16th across from Steeplechase. In later years it
moved to a niche just east of the subway terminal until 1968 when it
was dissembled and stored. This Carousel
is seen in the 1940's movie Little Fugitive.
piece was obtained from John Daniels in 1990 by
the Spirited Steeds Studio.
Mr. Daniels at one time owned all three of
the Supreme machines. It
was carefully restored to it’s former glory and finished in
period style. This is a rare piece indeed surviving from one of
only three Illions
Supreme carousels know to be built.
