Suchard at the Exposition Universelle

A pair of adverts from the Guide Lemercier for the Paris Exposition Universelle of 1900, available as either a PDF or individual page scans at the University of Heidelberg’s archive. This looks like it would have been a very usable guide, with coloured maps and a good selection of photographs. The Suchard adverts provide splashes of colour throughout and this is the only guide I’ve seen to date which favours a single company this way. The space for notes on each ad page is rather generous as well as being something you can’t imagine anyone trying now.

    Here’s a less impressive Aussie version of an old photos archive for the city of Sydney.
    Try searching for Luna Park as an example.
