The World's Fair in Chicago, 1893, was to be a spectacular event: architects, musicians, artists, and inventors worked on special exhibits to display the glories of their countries. But the Fair's planners wanted something really special, something on the scale of the Eiffel Tower, which had been constructed for France's fair three years earlier. At last, engineer George Ferris had an idea  --- a crazy, unrealistic, gigantic idea. He would construct a twenty-six-story tall observation wheel. Today, George's Ferris Wheel is an icon of adventure and amusement throughout the world.
