Letter: Bring Back CdA Carousel

On Christmas Eve I read about the 90-year-old Carousel that used to live at Playland Pier near Independence Point during the ‘40s and ‘50s. Being nearly 75 years old myself - I was in wonderment of these, when I was little. Children now, do not have the opportunity to experience the magical things we had back then. Our community needs to work hard to find the means to have this gem returned to our city. It could go to the park near the children's area or somewhere in the new McEuen field area. We can't let this opportunity pass us by. I would ride again and again/Marj Chapter, Coeur d'Alene Press (letter to the editor).

Question: Would you like to see a carousel returned to Indepedence Point or some other place on the waterfront?
