    From the Paper Print Collection at Library of Congress

    The Exposition Universelle of 1900 was a world's fair held in Paris, France, from April 15 to November 12, 1900, to celebrate the achievements of the past century and to accelerate development into the next. The fair, visited by nearly 50 million, displayed many machines, inventions, and architecture that are now nearly universally known, including the Ferris wheel, Russian nesting dolls, diesel engines, talking films, escalators, and the telegraphone (the precursor to modern-day sound recording).
