Anderton & Rowlands "Diving Dolphins" carousel, 1930. The ride was first introduced by Anderton & Rowlands in 1921 as the "Golden Dragons". The cars were changed to Dolphins in 1929, just before this photograph was taken. The dolphins were modernised into the Brookland Racer in 1936 in an attempt to try and compete with newer, more popular, rides but it was retired at the end of the 1938 season.
