Strand Carousel

This view faces south on Ocean Avenue. In the distance the Coast Guard Life Saving Station  can be observed on the west side of the street. The merry-go-round that is visible on the left side of the postcard was known as the Strand Carousel. It was located between Danceland and Strand Baths. The Strand Carousel was the boardwalk’s second merry-go-round and was operated along with the Freeman’s Carousel that was located a mere one block to the north. Apparently, there was enough business to support two carousels!
