Stereoscope Card - 37. Musée du Trocadéro 767 Fond Salle D. Portique de la Cathédrale de Limoges


Gabriel Davioud was the architect for this now lost building best described as a mashup of Moorish and Byzantine style. For it's original World's Fair purpose, it was meaningful, but much like other temporary buildings in Paris, it was contentious. The Eiffel Tower, for instance, was meant to come down in 1889. Daviod's presence, however, is not gone from Paris. The Fountain at Place Saint-Michel, just a short walk from Notre Dame is his ubiquitous news kiosks.

Photographed and published by S.I.P, c.1900.

Good condition.

Weighs 0.5oz and measures 7 x 3  3/8 inches.
