Built in 1925, PTC carousel #72 carried the nickname “Philtobco”. Brass-Ring-Ent-PTC-72_Carousel-HorseThe nicknames given to machines at the factory presumably distinguished them by style in addition to their numbers for chronology. Although there is nothing specific in the PTC archives to tell us why this one machine was loaded with 16 signature figures, the machine’s nickname of “Philtobco” is certainly fitting as this is certainly a signature carousel.
