1893 Columbian Exposition

ferris wheel
WORLD'S FIRST
FERRIS WHEEL

*Extraordinary Displays*

Chicago's 1893 World Columbian Exposition celebrated the 400th anniversary of the "Discovery of America".  The United States intended to show the world that it had become a world class nation.

The Ferris Wheel, an engineering masterpiece, became the symbol of the fair.  Built to rival the 1889 Eiffel Tower. The world's first Ferris wheel was 250 feet in diameter and could carry 2,160 people in its 36 steel cars that held 60 people each. Fifty cents purchased a three revolution ride.  Each revolution took twenty minutes.

The Ferris Wheel was again erected at the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition which was also the site of the first Olympics held in the United States.  After the Exposition the wheel was scrapped.

The Christopher Columbus Museum displays a 1/50 scale model of the wheel and a 1/12 scale model of a car, built by Duane B. Anderson of Columbus, WI.  Ship models include 1/24 scale model of Santa Maria from the Smithsonian, Nina from the National Geographic and Pinta from Spain 1992. Also displayed are 3D views, and a variety of photos, books, drawings and many souvenirs - including Enlarged Photos of all Major Fair Buildings, Poole Bros. Color Lithigraphs of Fair, State and International Buildings.

"Cristoforo Colombo - God's Navigator"
"Cristoforo Colombo - God's Navigator"

"Cristoforo Colombo - God's Navigator" by Douglas T. Peck
Deceased January, 2014

The author is a retired USAF officer and experienced ocean navigator who conducts historical field studies of early explorers by following their navigation logs in a scientifically controlled reconstruction of their voyages. The book presents a true picture of the intrinsic character of Columbus and the purpose of his voyage, which was solely to find a way to the Orient to extend the Christian empire of Spain, and not to obtain gold or slaves a popularly believed. Colonel Peck also proved conclusively that Columbus was an exceedingly accurate navigator, his navigation log was accurate and easily followed, and his true landfall in the New World was on San Salvador Island in the Bahamas rather than on the several other proposed landfall islands.

"Ponce de León and the Discovery of Florida"
"Ponce de León and the Discovery of Florida"

"Ponce de León and the Discovery of Florida"
by Douglas T. Peck
Deceased January, 2014

In like manner to his book on Columbus, Colonel Peck used the log of Juan Ponce de León to re-sail the Spanish conquistador's 1513 exploration voyage to Florida. The book presents a fresh look at the noteworthy achievements of Ponce de León and proves conclusively that he was not looking for a mythical fountain of youth and his landfall in Florida was at Melbourne Beach, 125 miles south of St. Augustine, which is contrary to the popular and accepted view.

*********************
Colonel Peck's latest book is titled "The Yucatan - From Prehistoric Times to the Great Maya Revolt of 1546," details the history of the advanced seafaring Maya of the Yucatan and their encounter with the early Spanish conquistadors.
