A Louisianian’s Grand Tour in the Belle Époque
A Louisianian’s Grand Tour in the Belle Époque

Young Aurelie Levert of St. Delphine Plantation in West Baton Rouge set out on an adventure of a lifetime in 1900 when she traveled Europe for three months.  She spent most of her time in Paris taking in the sights and sounds of the Exposition Universelle—the grand World’s Fair of 1900.  This trip was taken during the height of the Belle Époque (1871-1914), a "beautiful era” characterized by optimism, seeming peace and prosperity, new technology and scientific discoveries, and a flourishing arts scene.
