In honor of this weekend’s World’s Fair Heritage Festival & Games event, today’s photo shows a General Electric Company streetcar making a stop at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition in 1904 in Forest Park. You probably guessed due to the telltale World’s Fair Observation Wheel seen in the background.
The 264-foot wheel was located just southeast of Skinker and Forsyth boulevards on what is now the Norman K. Probstein Golf Course (Redbud Course.) Check out an interactive World’s Fair map here.
Fair organizers encourage the public to ride Metro to this weekend’s event. Find details here and have a great weekend!
