A false Paris outside Paris: A city created to be bombed, 1920
A page from the Illustrated London News, 1920, illustrating a sham Paris, created to trick German pilots flying at night into thinking they were bombing Paris during World War One. A false railway is shown in day light, and a stretched canvas, made to represent la Gare d'est from the air, is shown at the top of the page.
