The Exposition Universelle, Paris 1900, was part of a remarkable tradition of International Expositions (World's Fairs) that were held in Europe and the United States from the middle of the nineteenth century to the time of World War I. The Exposition Universelle, Paris 1900, is most remembered for its influence on the Art Deco movement and for architectural gems like Eliel Saarinen's Finnish Pavilion. The illustrations and photographs included in this section give a sense of the architecture at the fair and what it might have been like to stroll through the exhibits and pavilions.
