Giant Ferris Wheel

Here's one of the photos I took in the exhibition "Meet me in the Prater! Viennese pleasures since 1766" at the Wien Museum: it shows a model of the Giant Ferris Wheel, located at the entrance of the Wurstelprater. It was constructed in 1897 by the English engineer Lieutenant Walter Bassett Bassett and was one of the earliest Ferris wheels ever built.
