Found a fun site for any fellow Paris geeks out there. It’s a simple concept but a great one: a picture taken at a location 100 years ago (horses, buggies, and all), and next to it a modern day shot of the exact same spot. It’s remarkable how damn little these areas have changed in a century; isn’t that why we love it here? The site’s in French but simply clicking on the right-hand photo of each pair will cycle you through. Enjoy!
I love, love, love that site! And yes, love that so little has changed over time – it’s a city like no other!
