Paris Then and Now

Thursday, April 4, 2013

Porte Saint-Denis, Paris

Rue d'Aboukir, Paris

Rue du Pas-de-la-Mule - Boulevard Beaumarchais, Paris

Rue des Martyrs, Paris

Rue Basfroi, Paris

Rue de la Roquette, Paris

Passage du Caire, Paris

J’adore! Recently a Parisian photographer, Audrey Cerdan was asked to recapture a few vintage scenes in modern day Paris and create an interactive photo set that shows those spots from two different points of view – now and hundred years ago. I spent the last hour sliding back and forth between the images and playing the spotting game. Aren’t those awesome?  For me Paris in 1914 looks so romantic, even more than now. What do you think? xo

P.S: Also, stolen smooches in Paris.
P.P.S: Would you visit Paris during winter?

Some places are almost unrecognizable and some are almost the same. What a great find Diana. Cheers, Grace.

Grace so true! The Rue de la Roquette looks totally different. It used to be a cinema. But Passage du Caire looks so alike.
