Overview

Paris, the capital of France, is one of the most popular destinations in the world. The City of Lights is renowned for many things—its history, beauty, high quality of life, cosmopolitanism, art, fashion, cuisine, cultural diversity, romance, architecture, museums, theaters, and intellectual life. For these and countless other reasons, Paris immediately evokes strong sentiment, whether or not one is lucky enough to have been there. With a selection of fine historic images from her best-selling book Historic Photos of Paris, Rebecca Schall provides a valuable and revealing historical retrospective on the growth and development of this seductive and unforgettable city. This book, Remembering Paris, follows the rise of Paris through the people, places, and historic events that shaped its development in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Iconic landmarks, scenes of daily life, and unique and rare moments are presented in more than a hundred historic photographs, revealing a rich portrait of the urban masterpiece that is Paris.
