"The Grande Roue de Chicago was a very popular attraction. It was a gigantic ferris wheel 110 meters high, which took its name from a similar wheel created by George Washington Gale Ferris Jr. at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago. It could carry 1600 passengers in its forty cars in a single voyage."

"Jules took documentary photography awards in 1903 and 1904 for pictures he made on the Seine riverbanks and in Montmartre. Images by the three brothers, who signed their initials (JHLS) were exhibited and published in various journals and as postcards by the Kunzli brothers and Leopold Verger."

Thanks GeoffHa - I think you are correct. That would put the Eiffel Tower to our back.

Found this on line. Tax stamp is 24.8.98
Exchange rate in 1898 was 1 = $4.85.


Also came across this most interesting story:
