CIRCLE OF DREAMS.

VHS_CircleOfDreams[VHS: Visions Media – 1996 – 53 mins]. “Circle of Dreams – The Making of the Seabreeze Carousel: Since 1926 The Philadelphia Toboggan Company #36, (PTC 36) also known as the Seabreeze Carousel, has occupied a place in the hearts and minds of children of all ages who visit Seabreeze Amusement Park (Rochester, New York). In March of 1994, a tragic fire took the beloved carousel from this community. This is the story of the aftermath and the determination of the owners of Seabreeze Amusement Park to build a new carousel in the grand tradition of PTC 36. In this video documentary you will hear from members of the Seabreeze family – owners of the park, and you will watch as the carver, the painters, the craftsmen, and the builders create a new carousel and pavilion on the site of PTC 36. This video will give you a first-hand look at the time honoured practice of carousel operation, design and construction passed down through five generations of the Long family. Here you will watch first-hand as the beauty and craft of fine carousel making is revived and raised to its highest standard.” ANDY SHINE SAYS: An engaging programme detailing glorious triumph over crushing tragedy. ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Excellent / Recommended.
