In Paris in the 1900's, life was lived on the streets more than in homes and the streets were crowded and alive with people promenading, shopping, going to the theatre, sitting in cafes day and night.
I love the paintings by Jean Beraud, they depict the scene back then, so beautifully.
Well dressed Ladies and Gentlemen, horse drawn carriages, vendors and peddlers selling their wares and children playing games in the streets.
Alfred Delvau wrote 'that as soon as it awakes, Paris leaves its abode and steps out and doesn't return home until as late as possible in the evening'
