Vintage Paris photos

It’s spring, and so of course my thoughts have returned to Paris, the beautiful city of blossom and boulevards, baguettes and bicyclette *sigh*. But Paris has always had a certain charm it was a very different place when Zeppelins were in the sky or there were German soldiers on the streets. Take a look at these 10 very different views of Paris in the past…

And if you’d like to see more take a look at my Paris photos on Pinterest.
