The “Musee Carnavalet”  (Carnavalet Museum), in Paris, will be showing a collection of wonderful old photos from the XIXth century, from April to July, 2012.  Here are a few I found on their website.  This makes me dream of old times – wouldn’t you just want to travel in time and visit other centuries?

Women doing their laundry on the Canal Saint Martin – 1904


Before 1852 – chimney sweepers – Paris


Street singer and Barbarie Organ player – 1898 – Paris
Place Saint-Medard – 1899

So, if you happen to be in Paris between April and July, make sure to go and see this wonderful collection!
