Bedman posted a topic in 1893, Chicago, United States - World's Columbian ExpositionHello, I received a photocopy many years ago from an avid Columbian collector of the opening ceremony for the Ferris Wheel in 1893. It featured a crowd under the wheel with tables at which were seated the dignitaries and Ferris himself. The whole area was adorned with patriotic bunting and flags. I have been looking for the source of this image (which I have misplaced) to no avail. I was hoping someone had seen this and knew of the source. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
