Friday Video: Paris in 1900

Friday, November 20, 2015

Isabella reporting,

This has been such a sorrowful week for the City of Lights. This short video, shot during the Exposition Universelle of 1900, captures a much different time, and a city and its people that were smiling and happy, confident and carefree. For the sake of Paris and the rest of the world, we hope those times return soon.

Love it! Great footage, perfectly recapturing some of the excitement at the Universal Exposition of 1900. Before that year, historians mostly relied on photos and paintings.

Brilliant to see the world's second travelator, starting from 4:24!
