Rare Pictures of Paris almost 100 Years apart

It is so much fascinating to get a glimpse of how the world was before, in the previous era. Sometimes I wish cameras were invented much earlier, as we could have visualized how people of the ancient period lived. Nevertheless, we can easily get a view of how things were before 10 decades.

Porte Saint– Denis adorns Paris with its ethnic beauty. The Parisian monument located in the crossing of the Rue Saint-Denis turns out to be the most attractive tourist spot today. This is evident with the number of food and shopping outlets seen in the latest picture. Whereas, 100 years ago it was calm and aloof.

This passage walkaway was opened during Napoleon’s campaign in Egypt. Heavily occupied by the wholesale of ready-mades today the purpose of this channel when built was to sit back and relax viewing the garden of the convent of the Filles-Dieu, near the Square of Miracles.

Named after a former locality this street is located in the heart of Paris. Accordingly, it is filled with restaurants and other commercial outlets. It was the same 1918 too, just that the commodities are being sold in an ancient style.

Surviving the “great flood of 1919” and several other natural disasters like storms, it’s unique that the signature spots of Paris still retain its beauty.  The places remain with the same purpose but with a different outlook to match the cultural change.
