Stereographs (also called stereograms) were double photographs intended to be viewed with a stereoscope to give a three-dimensional impression of the subject. By 1900, stereographic sets documenting world events or famous works of art and architecture were so popular that they were sold in department stores and door to door. This set of stereographs, published by the Collection Stéréoptique Félix Potin, records this last and largest exposition of the 19th century. Other images of the 1900 Paris exposition in image collections include albums by Neurdein Frères.
