Great images of Paris Exposition of 1900

A very nice collection of postcard photos from the 1900 Paris Exposition Universelle is available online. (You can buy posters of the photos, too.) It is amazing to see how many lasting structures were built, like the Alexander III Bridge, Gare d'Orsay, and the Grand Palais.

Is this the earliest inspiration for the trylon and perisphere?

Not that I know, but I wouldn't think so. Seems like it would be an idea as old as a globe.
