Nice. looks like the photos commissioned by Albert Kahn.
Also, although not colour, Eugene Atget produced some similarly striking images of Paris.
Gorgeous, thanks Jon :)
No problem. The moment some color is added, it doesn't feel so much of a distant past any more. You see that lady with her dog, and it startles me that they had pet dogs.. for some reason. Of course they did! But it just made me stop and think for a moment.
