I spotted this delightful, old carousel & immediately googled it & found these images. I think it's a traveling carousel & there is more than one. Does anyone know?

When I lived in St-Tropez there were 2 carousels in town, but neither of them were that cool.

There was also one close to where I lived in Milan but it was all princessy and lame.
