Magic Lantern Slide: Paris. Arc de Triomphe (slide)


This slide by William Weaver Baker shows the Arc de Triomphe. It is one of a set of slides of Paris created by Baker, probably around the year 1900 with the Exposition Universelle. The Arc de Triomphe was a monument of victory and remembrance for those who died for France in the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. The Arc stands at 50m high, the scale of which is shown by the carriage and horse and carts driving beneath.
