Now today's exciting entry:
This is the Saint of liquor or something. This section has stills and huge distillery tanks. (NO Samples)
Look closely at this chandelier, It is thirty feet across. huge.
There were so many pipe organs I lost count. Can you imagine playing this thing. Look at all the bells and whistles.
This clock it at least thirty feet high.
Believe it or not, girls cannot see this, this is in the men's room.
Sherry said she felt like a little girl again, there must have been over 500 doll houses.
These Circus ladies are standing on a pyramid of five life size elephants. That is how big this next Calliope is.
This is only part of the wind and string section of the Calliope . They all produce music. The instruments play by compressed air like the old pump organ. There are at least 200 instuments in this Calliope. They produce fantastic music.
This was one of my favorite sections. When Sherry presses the button, it controls about ten of the little animations. All from jewelery stores over the years. These I remember being in the jewelry store windows when
Dad took us to Lincolton, NC on Sunday afternoon, to look in the store windows. It was hard for them to pry me away from the jewelry store window, watching these things. I know they had three or four hundred of them all working.
This is the Doll Carousel. It has about seven levels and is three stories high. It continually turns and has it's own Calliope to perform the music continutally. (CAUTION THE NEXT FRAME HAS NUDES)
This is the very top of the doll carousel.
Looking down from the second floor here are some of the carousel figures not used, there were hundreds of these.
