The more time goes by, the more it seems we try to hold onto the past. They say you can never go back but it’s nice to touch a piece of the past again. One of my fondest childhood memories is of the merry-go-round at the Justice Grade School. While visiting Logan one weekend in 1999, I couldn’t resist the temptation of stopping by my old grade school. More than forty years had passed so imagine my surprise to see that the playground equipment was still there including my favorite, the merry-go-around. I hadn’t seen it since 1957 and it looked great. I can remember that we would get it going so fast that it would be all you could to do to just hang on. It was great fun. Since my memory of it goes back to 1957, I’m guessing it was in service for over fifty years. Being in use for so many of years, there were probably thousands of kids like me that thoroughly enjoyed and loved it. Sadly, when I went back to visit in 2001 it was no longer there. Like most of the other merry-go-rounds throughout the country, it was removed because of safety concerns. The pictures below were taken in 1999.
