Matt, this website is a great find. These are some of the best pictures I've seen of Paris 1937 which also happens to be one of my favorite world's fairs. If you look at the eighth picture, you can see some of the flood damage that caused many exhibits, including the U.S. Pavilion, to open several months late.

The photographs are stunning.  The color, the pavilions along the Seine, the architectural styles--these shots are wonderful.  This is evidence of how an exposition can make powerful and creative use of a water source.  Thank you for sharing.
