Color photos of Paris in the early 1900s

A whole treasure-trove of color images from Paris just after the turn of the century, courtesy of the Lumière borthers...

Some of these are really extraordinary.

Oh my god these are beautiful. Has anyone ever gone to the Albert Kahn Museum in Paris where these are from? Are they on exhibit?
