Book Synopsis
In 1893, Pittsburgh engineer and bridge builder George Washington Gale Ferris, Jr. suddenly became world famous with the introduction of his mammoth "pleasure wheel" at the World's Columbian Exposition.
Celebrating the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus' discovery of America, the Chicago World's Fair - and most importantly its innovative Ferris Wheel - succeeded in putting the prosperous Midwestern city on the map.
This booklet is a facsimile of a rare illustrated souvenir sold at the Ferris Wheel during the 1893 World's Fair.
