Merry Go Round - Lae - Does anyone remember ?

Taken from an email I received from one of our newest members :

Do you remember the merri GO Round in Lae? It had a white & Red top cover and had wooden flat horses.

This was made by my father Bob Dudgeon and my cousin Vic Faulkner of (Faulkner & Tait Pannelbeaters).

My dad bought Vic's half.

He used to take to Wau & Bulolo for their shows also.

Dad never kept any of the proceeds from it, he kept enough to pay for petrol, oil and donated the rest to Lions or Rotary.

Bob Dudgeon's merry go round

Yes, I remember Bob's merry go round, used to pop up at many functions that I was at either officially or with my kids, in perticular, a Xmas function at Lae Pre School just down the road from Bulae School. I think it was 1970 or 71. I knew Bob & Vic personally having arrived in Lae in 62 and left in 75. Vic not very closely but Bob was one of natures rare gentleman. Had a lot to do with him as foreman in the Govt Transport Workshop

I don't remember the merry-go -round but I have some slides of my sister and I on it at the Lae Show in 1964.

Re merry go round.

Hi,

was in Lae from 1964-1982.

Going through old photos and found this one taken at the Lae show in the very early 60's.

Bulae's Merry Go Round

This is not the movable one but remember this one at Bulae. Had some great stacks on this one trying to get it to go fast.

Cool my fond memories of Merri Go Round

I clearly remembered the wonderful fun I had with this Merri GO round.
I was in Grade three in 1990 and I went to Bumyong high school and enjoyed the ride during their fete fundraising.

I missed that. I think some investors should provide these type of business in and around Lae especially for the children.
