Through the rose colored lens: Part 2.

These are more photos of the Paris Exposition of 1900 from the Brooklyn Museum's collection (see the previous batch of these photos in this post).   I think they are just magical.  The world exposition must have been an incredible sight in Victorian days.... They had massive, glorious pavilions set up to represent countries of the world (China, Cambodia, Belgium, the US, etc).  I really love the charm of these hand colored photos-- they are almost dream-like and it makes me want to step into the photo.
