Grande Roue de Paris Antique French Postcard 1900 Expo Ferris WheelGrande Roue de Paris Antique French Postcard 1900 Expo Ferris WheelGrande Roue de Paris Antique French Postcard 1900 Expo Ferris Wheel

The Grande Roue de Paris was a 328-foot tall "Ferris" wheel built for the 1900 Paris Expo. This card does not say it was specifically printed for the exposition, but the undivided back tells us it was printed in 1903 or earlier. The Grande Roue was the tallest wheel in the world at the time of its opening. The passenger cars were so large (like the size of a train box car!) that they were removed from the wheel and used as homes for French families after the devastation of World War I. This postcard is unused. Slight album impressions at the corners. Some white "stuff" can be seen/felt around the bottom of the wheel, but nothing so noticeable to distract from the beauty of the illustration. For its age, overall, in fine antique condition. Antique postcard size: about 5.5 by 3.5 inches.
