Paris Exhibition viewed from the Seine
Summary
"This panoramic scene is taken from a Seine steamboat and gives a rapid view of the banks of the river. The launch steams under six bridges and past the Street of Nations. The United States Building is a prominent white domed structure, gay with national flags. The picture ends at the famous three million dollar bridge, the Point [i.e., Pont] Alexander III. 375 feet"--Edison films catalog, no. 105.
The trip begins just before the Pont de l'Alma. Clearly visible are Pavillon Schneider, Palais des Armeés de Terre et de Mer (the schooner, Deux Empereurs, is also visible), the Pont de l'Alma, the pavilions of Serbia, Sweden, Monaco, Spain, Germany, Norway, Hungary, Austria, the United States, Turkey and Italy, and the Pont Alexander III. Partially visible are the pavilions of Greece, Belgium, Great Britain, and Bosnia-Herzegovia, and the Pont des Invalides.
