Big Eli Photos – Late 1950s

The larger No. 16 “Aristocrat” model Big Eli Wheel (left) was purchased by Tunney & Groffie in 1957. The wheel carried 672 25-watt lamps, with the outside circle white, 8-point star red, center circle yellow, and the center circle white, and  could be seen for miles in the evening.  Seats were standard red and green.  The No. 12 Big Eli Wheel (right) was an older model owned by Rundle & Tunney.
