CDR-1328: SR Set: La Belle Epoque: 1871-1914

Peace, stability and prosperity (for many) after the end of the Franco-Prussian War in 1871 set in motion immense advances in the sciences, in building technology and the arts in France and all across Europe (Jugendstil). An influx of cheap labor into urban centers enabled large projects to flourish: the Metro, the Eiffel Tower and the early beginnings of automobile production, among others. Toulouse-Lautrec, Renoir, Gauguin, Matisse and others give a glimpse of the joyful life, accompanied in music and dance by the likes of Franz Lehar and Johann Strauss!
