This is a collection of photographs of Paris then and now. Each site is labeled, with a black and white photo on the left side of the open book and colorful modern photo of the site.

I have only looked through some of the pages, but, with the dream of some day traveling to Paris, it provides some wonderful (short & sweet) insight to the monuments and landmarks that have defined the amazing city for thousands of years. In addition to great photos and interesting captions, it has "coffee table book" written all over it (figuratively speaking of course).

If you have an interest in Paris and its history, this could be a great one to check out!

Another excellent title in this Then and Now series. As always, black and white photography takes us back in time to the streets and buildings of old and compare then to their modern day counterparts.

Loved this book. It is a collection of side-by-side old-time and current-day photographs of Paris. Each picture has a paragraph with intriguing tidbits about history, language, or folklore about the subjects depicted and how they did or didn't change over time. Fascinating and fun.
