No one loved carousels, their histories and fantasy more than Bob Minick. Here’s an interview that ended up in a great book, Funland USA, the complete guide to 100 major amusement and theme parks all across the country by Tim Onosko, published in 1978. Mr. Onosoka was also force in this industry. Stay tuned, there are many interviews of Bob to come. Mr. Onosoko started the “Handsome Texas Giant” moniker. In another park in a land far away Bill Ott changed the moniker to “Gentle Blue Eyed Texas Giant” and that one stuck forever. Here’s to my favorite forever Gentle Blue Eyed Texas Giant.
