Old Paris

This book, a small album of panoramic photos from the 20-ies and earlier, bought early this spring.

Marvelous find. The enlarged images on rough heavy paper are simply spectacular feast for the eye.
The shot of the Opera is particularly splendid as it shows an authentic and lively human interaction of that day. On the right side there is a group of two women and a man seen from behind.
The fashion of the period dictated light loose jacket, gloves and a hat.
For a man - obligatory Panama hat, after all it is no longer winter!
The women remind me the way my grandma and her friend Nellie (we thought it is aunt Tralalla at first...)
