Joywheel for Skegness

That exhilarating form of amusement, known as the Joywheel, bids fair to be a popular attraction at Skegness next season.

At the last Council meeting an enquiry was made by a gentleman desiring to erect a Joywheel on the beach at a cost of £600.

Since then, however, another firm has come along, purchased land from Mr Charles Smyth, and deposited plans with the local council.
Skegness is, therefore, practically certain to have a Joywheel next year!

Note: Plans for the Joywheel did, eventually, come to fruition, and was erected on the north foreshore. However, it was destroyed by fire in 1915.
