Right, frequently they are curved along with the curved frame of the merry-go-round; but sometimes carousel artwork along the edges of the main structure (and decorating the inner core/axle) can be flat rather than curved:

Yes Odinthor, sometimes things can be so confusing and strange. The other day I was looking at the cloudy sky over Hollywood and one of the clouds looked like a bunny rabbit and another one looked like a lion. Can you imagine that?

I usually don't talk about it on NLA....I just keep it to myself.

I guess we have a new topic on NLA...carousel artwork.

We have seen Santa Monica's enormous Arcadia Hotel on NLA but I believe this might be a view that we haven't seen before.

I'm curious about the large barn-like building on the far right. I'm quite sure we haven't seen it before.





Here's a closer look at the structures to the south of the hotel including the structure in question. - - - - - - ->

Oh, and one last thing.

I believe this is a photographer's wagon. (you can see it at far left in the detail immediately above)



I don't believe it's a portable dressing room because the bathhouse, no doubt with changing rooms, is right there.
