Edward Thomas Stevenson
Mildred "Gladys" Moreshead
met on Labor Day, Sept 4 1922 in Revere, MA.
Locals in the suburbs of Boston, they had both gone to
kaloop around the local hot spot at the time
known as Revere Beach.
My grandmother would often say
"We met on the Merry-Go-Round
& we've been going around together ever since!"

"Carousels provided thousands of children and adults with endless hours of music along the boulevard. Hurley’s Hurdlers, the Rough Riders, The Teddy Bear Merry Go Round and of course, The Hippodrome Carousel, were all magical places to visit.
The Hippodrome originally built in 1903, had a platform that displayed three Carousel horses abreast; it was later extended to showcase five abreast making it one of a kind. The organ music of the two Gavioli organs can still be heard with the memory of this majestic carousel which operated until May 1973. Wonderland Park, Revere Beach’s Mystic City by the Sea, was America’s foremost self-contained amusement park. Conceived in 1905, it opened in 1906. Some people believe it to be the inspiration behind the Disney theme parks of today. The similarities are striking."
