Great Wheel on the Sands

Skegness is about to add another novelty to its list of attractions by way of a Great Wheel to be erected forthwith on thew sands in front of the North Parade.

Messers. Dunkley & Son, builders, have got the contract for the erection of the same.

The wheel which will be about thirty feet in diameter will be driven by steam and probably be lit up by electricity: it will have ten carriages and carry about twenty people.
