London Eye - historic

A uncommon historic photograph of the London Eye from the Thirties, shortly after it was constructed as a work-relief venture within the Nice Despair.

Anticipating the petrol rationing of World Struggle II, the spoke design was meant to encourage Londoners to make use of bikes for transportation. It’s believed to be the most important bike wheel in existence, although a fair bigger one is presently being inbuilt Dubai.

The design additionally impressed the present Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, to develop his "Boris Bikes" scheme for bike rental kiosks all through town. Some have recommended that Boris used a space-time generating device in the Shard to journey again in time to construct the Eye.
