Scope and Content
Fonds consists of seven boxes of textual records including; scrapbooks, receipts, statements, publications and information on the restoration of the Parker Carousel by the Lower Mainland Association of Friends of the Vancouver Carousel (Friends of the Carousel).
History/Biography
The no. 119 “Carry-Us-All” Carousel was built in 1912 by C.W. Parker an amusement ride manufacturer in Leavenworth, Kansas. Fred Leggett bought no.119 for “Lone Star” Amusement Co. in Houston Texas, but it was returned to the Parker Factory in 1915 for reasons unknown. Back at the factory it was upgraded from Standard style to Superior and electrified (this explains the mix of carving styles, some pre-dating 1913). It was used in the San Francisco area until 1936 when it was shipped to “Happyland” in Vancouver’s Hastings Park (home of the Pacific National Exhibition) then passed to “Playland” at Hastings Park in 1957. In 1988 the Carousel was scheduled to be broken up and sold at auction. Concerned citizens formed the Lower Mainland Association of the Friends of the Vancouver Carousel to save it. Through fundraising the Friends of the Carousel were able to acquire the Parker Carousel no. 119. Between 1990 and 1993 Friends of the Carousel were able to it completely restore, repaint and rebuild the Carousel. The City of Burnaby, Province of British Columbia and Friends of the Carousel contributed to the construction of a new building at Burnaby Village Museum designed to house it. Enterprising volunteers salvaged the maple hardwood gymnasium floor at the Oakalla penitentiary just before it was demolished and used it to rebuild the Carousel platform. The association also acquired and restored a Wurlitzer 146B organ. And on March 27, 1993, No. 119 moved to the Don Wrigley Pavilion at the Burnaby Village Museum, the Pavilion having been named after the president of the Friends of the Carousel for his coordination of the restoration project. Mrs. Norvie Frame daughter of the original owner of the carousel Mr. Fred Leggett came with her family from Texas to attend the official opening. The Burnaby Village Museum exhibit “The Story of Parker #119” and the video “Labour of Love: The Saving of Number 119” and their accompanying publications were created by the association.

Description
This is a Wurlitzer Military Band Organ, Style 146B. Built by the Rudolph Wurlitzer Company, ca 1925. The organ is supposed to recreate the sound of a 20-piece military band, with percussion instruments that include bass drum, snare drums, cymbals, and xylophones, as well as pipes to reproduce the sounds of trumpets, trombones, flutes, and violins. This band organ is operated by paper rolls based on Wurlitzer's unique, 46 note roll scale, "Style 150". Our Model 146B has duplex roll frames, allowing continuous playing, one roll rewinds as the other is playing. An electric motor mounted on the top uses a belt to drive a crankshaft that powers both the air bellows that feed the various music pipes as well as the roll mechanism. The band organ was originally intended to be used with a carousel out of doors. A perferated sheet of plexie glass has been placed over the front opening to reduce the volume of the instrument inside the carousel building.
Object History
The band organ was purchased and restored by the Friends of the Carousel to replace the original organ that had been sold before the carousel was acquired for the Burnaby Village Museum. The Friends of the Carousel bought this machine from a collector in Spokane, Washington. He had obtained it from a closed down travelling carnival company in Reno, Nevada. They had used it with a carousel in the American mid-west.

Description
C.W. Parker Carousel. Hand-carved wooden carousel built in Leavenworth, Kansas in 1912. Today, the carousel carries 36 horses, four cast aluminum ponies, a chariot, and a wheelchair. The carousel is housed in the Don Wrigely Pavilion at the Burnaby Village Museum and is in operation during the museum's open hours.
Object History
This carousel was built in 1912 at Leavenworth Kansas by C.W. Parker and was the 119th one made by them. It was originally sold in 1913 to Mr. F.K. Leggett of Houston Texas for $5,886.00 and was originally equipped with a steam engine and "wishbones/grass-hopper/jumping horse" mechanisms. It toured Texas for two years with the Lone Star Circus then in 1915 the machine was shipped back to the factory. It is believed that the machine was rebuilt by the factory, had some fancier horses and heavier rounding boards added. The jumping mechanism may have been changed then as well. Some of the horses are c.1917 and some 1920-22. The factory records consulted do not tell for certain where they machine went between 1915 and 1936, possibly to San Jose, CA from 1918 until 1922 and then to San Francisco California, or in Tacoma, Washington. In 1936 it was purchased, and was in operation at Happlyland in Vancouver by May 1936. The Parker #119 was put into a pavilion which had been built in 1928 by a rival company (Philadelphia Toboggan Company - P.T.C.) And was located next to the "Shoot the Chutes" ride. Here it remained until Happyland was demolished in 1957. Parker #119 was moved to the new small pavilion in Playland until that too was demolished in 1972. From 1972 to 1989, Parker #119 was operated outdoors, and was put away each winter. In 1989 it was announced that the carousel would be sold off horse by horse at an auction in New York. Ms. Venus Solano and Mr. Doug McCalum and other local people came together to "Save the Carousel" and formed the "Friends of the Vancouver Carousel Society". In May 1989, Burnaby Village Museum agreed to provide a home for the carousel and the "Friends", led by President Don Wrigley, set about raising the $350,000 to purchase the machine. Keith Jamieson, a carousel expert, was brought in to coordinate the rebuilding project. With a lot of hard work, the help of the Government of British Columbia and the support of the Municipality of Burnaby, the carousel was purchased. Funds were also raised to pay for the restoration, and Burnaby agreed to build a new pavilion for it as a Centennial project.
