French Pavillion
French Pavilion « previous 8 of 18 next »

The French Pavilion is much larger than it appears in this photo. Off to the right, there was a second structure identical to the one shown. The two buildings were connected by a colonnade. One popular display in the French Pavilion was of the Bertillon method, or Bertillage, a method of measuring criminals for identification purposes. Photos of criminals and the stories of their crimes drew large crowds which filled the pavilions all summer.
