The Water Fountain (Jet D'Eau) of Lake Geneva has become the symbol of Geneva.  At origin, it had an completely utilitarian function: a valve to regulate the water pressure in the Geneva water distribution system.  When the water pressure was too high, in order to prevent the pipes from bursting, a safety valve released the excess pressure into a water jet.

In 1891, the Geneva water jet was moved to its present location and became a tourist attraction.  But the water spewed only when the pressure in the city water system was dangerously high.  In 1947 "esthetics" took over, and a pump was installed, to shoot the water "on schedule".

bullet

Today, the fountain shoots 132 gallons (500 liters) per second (!!!) at 124 miles per hour (200 km per hour), to a height of 460 feet (140 meters).

Except for 3 weeks of maintenance in November when the fountain is not operational, the trademark jet of Geneva can be seen every day during daylight hours.  In Spring through Fall, on weekends, the fountain is illuminated at night by eight 13,500-watt projectors.

bulletThe posters and prints you order here are NOT the mass-produced, flimsy paper "dime-a-dozen" variety: every panoramic poster and print is printed "on demand" just for you, on photographic paper.  This ensures extreme high quality and a truly "limited" distribution.  
bullet You may chose GLOSSY or MATTE surface paper.  If you do not specify otherwise, your order will be processed on GLOSSY paper.   
bullet Escape: decorate your office or cubicle with a panoramic poster (or print) of a dream place.  
bulletGift idea for your sweetheart (or treat yourself...):  A unique panoramic poster!  
bulletThe Panoramic Posters and Panoramic Prints make exceptional gifts.  Please order well in advance of major Holidays.
bullet These posters are custom printed professionally and look absolutely stunning.  Exactly the same image presented on the Web site is printed (minus the copyright overlay).  Panoramic pictures present a view that is impossible to capture with "normal" cameras.  The very large panoramas present a view that is larger than the human normal field of view.  Because of technical reasons (due to panoramic processing and exceptionally large field of view), when examined under magnification, certain elements may appear distorted or imperfect.   Any such imperfections are not visible under normal viewing and will not interfere with the enjoinment of the beautiful panorama.
