PARIS. Part de Fondateur. brown, buff. No 1097. Fold. Large format and most decorative piece showing a panorama of the Bay of Naples, with children looking at Vesuvius, a military lady, flags, etc. Design by Jean MALVAUX. The Mareorama was an entertainment attraction at the 1900 Paris World Exhibition. It was created by Hugo d'Alési, a painter of (mainly railroad) advertising posters, and was a combination of moving panoramic paintings and a large motion platform. It is regarded as one of the last major developments in the technology of panoramas, shortly before the medium became obsolete. The attraction presented spectators with a simulated sea voyage from Marseille to Yokohama, passing Algiers, Naples, Istanbul, the Suez Canal, Sri Lanka, and Singapore. It consisted of a 70m long replica of a steamship and 2 panoramas (one for the port side, one for the starboard) on large rollers. It could accommodate up to 700 passengers at a time.
