The photochrom process was invented in the 1880s by Hans Jacob Schmidt (1856-1924). His invention was patented by Orell Füssli in 1888, who then created a branch named Photochrom Zurich (which later became PZ Photoglob Zurich in 1895). The invention was presented at the Paris World Fair in 1900 and was met with enthusiasm which helped it become successful.
