Story about the model

One of the oldest rides that everyone has known since childhood is the ferris wheel. More than 120 years ago, the idea of ??building a tall wheel that would lift viewing cabins to great heights seemed impossible. But then a young engineer followed his dreams and George Washington Gale Ferris built the first bike that was designed for 2,160 passengers. Today this invention bears his name - FERRIS WHEEL.
