A history of one of
the world's most popular amusement rides: the Big Wheel.
Originally released in 1993 as
part of the celebrations of the 100th Anniversary of the Columbian
Exposition, this updated book tells the story of the inventor of
the Big Wheel, George Ferris, and the man behind the Eli Bridge
big wheels, William E. Sullivan. With pictures taken of wheels
over their 100-year history, including installations in the US and
UK, this is a fascinating book about one of the greatest amusement
park and fairground rides.
