The Great Wheel, Earl's Court. The Earl's Court ferris wheel dominated the west London skyline. Over 300 feet (90m) high, it offered panoramic views of London. On a clear day, the promoters boasted, one could see Windsor Castle. Popular souvenirs of the wheel included this model for assembling at home.
