The banks of the Seine at the Port des Champs-Elysées during the demolition of the pavilions of a Paris world exhibition of arts and industrial design, labeled the "Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et industriels moderne". It took place from April to October 1925. The highly successful "small World's Fair" had a 23.1-hectare exhibition area between the Esplanade des Invalides and the Grand Palais (background) and Petit Palais. Here you can see the Turkish luxury restaurants "La Tamise" and "La Corne d'Or", as well as a boat that was used for dancing.

The Art Deco exhibition did not leave permanent architectural relics.
