Paris in the XIXth Century

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!
