I love Paris in the springtime …

Paris 19th c street scene by Eugene Atget courtesy of the Paris museums

Toronto. One of the 19th century photographers I admire is Eugene Atget. My friend and fellow PHSC member Russ Forfar sent me a note on Atget et al recently.

Russ said that the Paris, France museums (some 14) have collectively decided to put some 60,000 plus famous photographs online and free to be used by all.

Russ sent me a link to the story in this petapixel article by Michael Zhang. Michael included the links to the photographs.

Note that the title of this post was borrowed from the song “I Love Paris“, sung here by Ella Fitzgerald.
