November 2013 Where The Heck Is It?
In 1896, the Gilroy Pencil Company in Cincinnati elected gigantic pencil models along highways as advertisements, but they proved too expensive and the experiment was soon abandoned.
If you disagree with this description, here are a few questions for you:
What do you think the large structure in the picture might be (be very specific)?
Who was the engineer responsible for this complicated apparatus?
Where is this event happening (again be very specific…just a city name will not be sufficient)?
And for the big prize, what year is this taking place?
Bring your answers to the November ARCE meeting where you can win prizes by answering these questions.
