Shot between 1896 and 1900, this remarkable compilation takes viewers on a journey back in time. In six minutes, it showcases several sites around the French capital, including still-standing landmarks like Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Champs-Élysées, and the ten-year-old Eiffel Tower. In addition to featuring specific locations, it also offers a glimpse of daily life, from a scene showing firefighters on horseback to footage of children playing with petits bateaux (“little boats”) in the Tuileries Garden.
Paris has always been magical, but this new footage adds a newfound feeling of glamour and mysticism. Watch the video and read all about it here!
