Cotton States Exposition

Description

View of the Phoenix Wheel ride at the Cotton States and International Exposition in Piedmont Park. A hundred and twenty-five feet in diameter, the view from the top of the Phoenix Wheel looked over the exposition from 200 ft off the ground. The Phoenix Wheel was a large draw for visitors to the exposition, and was such a popular attraction for romantics that exposition officials had to discourage couples from getting married aboard the ride.
