Riding a merry-go-round may be a rare treat in the United States but is a common one in France.
Paris has a number of carousels; the oldest still in use was made in 1879. When Bing first moved to Paris, she received assignments from a newspaper in her native Frankfurt, Germany, to photograph the city and its amusements, including popular public entertainments like the carousel.
