It’s one of those magical cities seemingly on everyone’s travel wish list. It’s on mine. I dream of photo shoots with an Eiffel Tower backdrop, romance on the Moulin Rouge, strolling through the arch of St. Denis Door. When I picture Paris, I picture the Paris of old, streets teeming with people, horse drawn carriages and dusty little cafes.
The team over at Golem 13 have taken a series of vintage photographs from the late 1800’s-early 1900’s of Paris and merged them with modern photographs of La Ville-Lumière, “The City of Light.”
[REWIND: THE CITY OF PARIS 100 YEARS AGO IN COLOR]
It is fascinating to see the side by side comparison of the city and the changes from a century ago – the styles and means of transportation, the shops and buildings that have risen and fallen. This glimpse into the past as well as the present was created in Photoshop, vintage postcards, photographs and Google Street View.
