Central Park Turnstile c1902
Very interesting, Joanne.
I wonder how old that turnstile is.
they were green in 1926 joanne
About 10 years ago I was in the library and the librarian told me that the turnstile was a fake, she said it had come from Blackpool tower circus.
great memories things like that bring i wonder how many kids were lifted over the gates back then .some good attendants when times were hard and how many times that pedal was pressed
There's an awful lot of history in that one article..if only it could speak Joanne.
It just shouts history and workmanship... Nothing similar could be made these days with the crafmanship that has gone into that turnstile.
I think more effort could have been done to paint it the same colour as it was though...
