Picture: A gorgeous antique carousel graces the grounds of Tilden Park with hand-carved fantastic creatures. Built in 1911, bought in 1978, the merry-go-round is one of 200 hand-carved wooden carousels in the United States. I took the picture in 1996 when I lived on Telegraph Street, Berkeley, California.
