I have something extra lovely to share today! There tons of amazing historic photo archives on flickr, but the Brooklyn Museum‘s Paris Exposition of 1900 set is just breathtaking! These images were brought back by the Brooklyn Museum’s first curator of fines, William Henry Goodyear.
According to the museum, “In 1900, Goodyear traveled to the Paris Exposition with photographer Joseph Hawkes. They brought back numerous images from the exposition including street life, vistas, pavilions, statues, and other structures and decorative details.”
You can see dozens of more photos from the Paris Exposition in this flickr set. And if you’d like a little more photo inspiration here are a few places to visit:
