For Sale is a Full Page removed from "The Graphic, June 23rd, 1900," showing a Drawing by Paul Renouard for a "Slight Mishap on the Moving Platform at the Paris Exhibition."
One of the most popular ways of seeing something at the Paris Exhibition is to take a trip on the moving platform, although occasionally nervous people find a little difficulty in adapting themselves to the travelling pathway. The platform is worked by 108 electric motors. It is continually in movement, and there are nine principal stations, furnished with bridges and staircases. The average height of the platform is 23 feet. It consists of three floors one of which is stationary, the second moves at a rate of two and a half miles an hour, and the third at five miles an hour, so that passengers can easily step from one to the other, according to fancy. The fare is 50 centimes for whole or part of route.
