    I would like to purchase a copy of the 1904 Worlds Fair Ferris wheel poster from St Louis. My husbands grandfather was an electrician who worked on the Ferris wheel. I plan to have it framed as a Christamas gift. Where can I purchase the photo ? Or How do I download ? Elaine

    PS..An original would be great ! A print is not deal breaker..
