The Wishbone Spoke
Probably the most iconic of all Fair symbols is the Ferris Wheel.
This past Saturday we took grandson Nicholas (age 8) to our local fair and rode this Seattle Wheel
which was commissioned at the 1962 Seattle's World Fair in Washington.
Almost every Ferris Wheel in the world has straight spokes
whereas this wheel uses the radical "wishbone" shaped spokes,
giving it the classic retro 1960's look.
