From 1908 to 1931, French banker Albert Kahn financed a monumental multimedia archive intended to record the ""surface of the globe as inhabited and developed by Man."" Stored in a world-themed garden on the outskirts of Paris, the Archives de la Planète contained 4,000 stereoscopic plates, 72,000 autochromes, and 183,000 meters of film, composing one of the twentieth century's most impressive attempts to preserve a memory of the world through media.
