Wrong Wheel

Page 34 of the September issue has a picture of “roulette players” taken in Reno in 1921. A roulette wheel is horizontal. The vertical device shown is known as a wheel of fortune, although few fortunes have ever been made on one by players. Proprietors, on the other hand, have done quite well.

We hope you enjoy our work.
