About this design
Mount Tom, Mountain Park Merry-G0-Round Budget Tote Bag
This Tote Bag carries a lot more than your odd & ends inside it shares a story of the world famous Holyoke, carousel! I have been working on a collection of pictures of this local work of art, that has been remarkably moved to its new location in our city! Reconstructed for the many residents of Holyoke, and others that come from all over to ride this wonder of various names: merry-go-rounds, carousels, roundabouts. These simple amusement devices date back to medieval times, when they had a more practical purpose as a training machine for knights in battle. Knights would sit on wooden planks arranged in a circle, suspended from a wooden centerpost. As they were spun around, the knights would try to thrust their lances through a small stationary ring that represented the head of their opponent in a jousting match. From this rather gruesome tradition, merry-go-rounds evolved into elaborate mechanical works of art that bring joy to young and old alike. After the ride was purchased, it was decided to rebuild it at Holyoke's Heritage State Park, in the center of the city's downtown. Timothy Murphy, a local architect, donated his services to design a spectacular recreation of the original carousel pavilion. On December 7, 1993, PTC merry-go-round #80 re-opened to the public in its new home. In its first ten years of operation there, it delighted over a half-million riders. The ride is self-supporting and each ride is only $2.00. The pavilion is a popular spot for birthday and corporate parties. The merry-go-round has hosted many weddings and receptions as well. It thrills new generations of families not only from the city but from all across the country, and it has helped revitalize the city's downtown district. This jewel of Holyoke is still living up to the name John Hickey gave it so many years ago: " Holyoke's Happiness Machine."
