In 1900, William Henry Goodyear (Brooklyn Museum's first curator) traveled to the Paris for the World Exposition of that year, with photographer Joseph Hawkes. They brought back numerous images from the exposition including street life, vistas, pavilions, statues, and other structures and decorative details. We took some of those pictures and compared them with today's Paris. Enjoy!
