The Ferris Wheel

Lately my dreams have been beginning on the hugest Ferris wheel ever built, that same Ferris wheel that was the first ever created nestled at the grounds of the White City. The one built by Mr. Ferris himself for the Chicago World Fair of the late 1800s. The World Fair supposedly responsible for bringing Nation-wide fame to the dancer known as Little Egypt.
So if you can't tell I have been reading Looking for Little Egypt before I have been going to bed but it is a fascinating book that goes into such great detail about this place in time that it gives me the most vivid dreams of actually being there. My brain continues the search long after I close the book and fabricates a different conclusion to the mystery every night.
It would make the most luscious vintage screenplay- I'm tempted to write it!
