Information about the antique lathe:
The lathe was used to produce The Carousel (the “Flying Horses”) now located at City Park. Harry Batt, Sr., whose family founded and operated Pontchartrain Beach, was one of the original owners of The Carousel and also owned the lathe.
A previous owner of the Adams Street house (our client’s grandfather) was an electrician and worked along St. Charles Avenue for decades before his retirement in the 1960’s. A friend of Harry Batt, Sr., he expressed interest in the lathe and woodworking. Harry Batt, Sr. offered to donate the lathe to him, which he did sometime in the 1960’s or early 1970’s. Our client’s grandfather never took up his interest in woodworking before his passing in 1973. The lathe remains in the same place now 40 years later, in the garage on Adams Street.
We hope someone will express interest in rescuing the lathe, with its interesting provenance, and bring new life to it! Come take a look this weekend.
