Photographic Print. Derby Racer Carousel white horse fairground ride at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, England.
The white horse and grey horse feature in this photograph of the Derby Racer. It was one of only three in the world, this carousel ride opened in 1959 after 2 years of construction. It has 56 horses in four rows, the outside row seeming the fastest, an elaborate roof and a classic fairground organ. Originally the platform on which the horses are mounted were split into 4 rings so each row of horses would speed up and slow down, as if really racing each other. The ride now operates as a simple carousel ride though at high speed. Just standing under the Modernist canopy is magical.
