While she was being built there were parts of her gracing specific locations from Paris to the United States.
This kind of process display would never happen today. I think her fragmented tour was an interesting way to at the very least make space in the workshop while the rest of her was being shipped off piece to piece to her final resting place. It also gave people the appreciation of her exact proportions, which were to say at the very least, quite intimidating. -tM
