The Paris Exposition Internationale


Postcard of the 1937 International Exhibition in Paris.
The exhibition of 1937 was the last of the 5 international exhibitions in Paris (the others being in 1855, 1867, 1878, 1889 and 1900).  The exhibition opened on 25 May 1937 and ran until the November of that year.
Interesting in this postcard is the German pavillion on the left directly facing the Russian pavillion on the right.

  1. The juxtaposition of the German and Soviet pavilions, in France, turned out to be ominous.

  2. Not only a beautiful photo but also very symbolic.
