PARIS: THEN AND NOW. Peter Caine. Pavilion Books Company Ltd., London, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Trafalgar Square Publishing, North Pomfret. 144 pp. 24 x 27 cm. ISBN 9781910496954 In English.
Publisher's description: Paris: Then and Now captures the changes that have taken place in Europe's most romantic city from the days before the Belle Epoque up to the 1960s. Pairing archive images with the same viewpoint taken in 2015, the book provides a succinct visual history to some iconic locations. The book takes an elegant stroll down the classic French boulevards, including all the classic, must-see tourist locations: Notre Dame, the Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower, and the Louvre. Some of the earliest pioneers in photography were French, and using their photos from the 1850s and 1860s we can see how Baron Haussman's sweeping changes from the 1870s eliminated parts of the old city. Written by two Paris-based tour guides and translated into French by a native Parisian, the book gives a vivid insight into how this elegant capital city has changed in the last 150 years. Sites include: Sacre Coeur, Montmartre, Moulin Rouge, Place Bastille, Place Vendome, Les Halles, Pont Neuf, Pont de L'alma, Pont Marie, the grand stations of Gare du Nord, Gare de L'Est, Paris Opera, the Pompidou Centre, Luxembourg Palace, and La Maison Catherine. Vintage Paris scenes from the time of the Belle Epoque and beyond are matched with the same views today to give a fascinating insight into the romantic capital of Europe.
