Paris Exposition of 1900 “ The Exposition of 1900 probably was the largest and most ambitious international gathering for any purpose ever. All the great nations tried to offer the pick of their art and industry for the judgment of the millions of visitors. Many of the remotest regions of the world were represented in the colonial exhibits.” – Richard D. Mandell, Paris 1900
