This is a link post Paris in the Early 20th C... in colour.
From the looks of it, most of these were taken shortly after WWI - what with all the flags and things. They're eerily quiet, though...

This is a normal post They are incredible.
I wonder if the indoor exhibition and outdoor orbs were part of the World's Fair.

lovely. I proposed to my now-ex wife in Paris. As we skipped hand-in-hand from the restaurant back to our hotel, she kicked off her shoes without a care, before treading in a very soft dog egg.

The omens were there, we now both agree.

Nice photos though. The ones of Paris, above. Not of my ex-wife's cacky foot.

This is a normal post Paris certainly is Dog Shit Central from my experiences.

This is a normal post Paris is shit central.
It smells of filth and disease and is filled with rude arrogant twats. Notice I didnt mention the French, just everyone that goes to Paris becomes a twat after the realisation they have just spent a tenner on a beer and everywhere is shit.

This is a normal post You are utterly wrong, but I forgive you, hotbuns.
Perhaps you've just gone to the wrong bits of Paris/drunk in the wrong bars.

Rome, however, is very dirty. I do not like Rome.

This is a normal post I live in Paris right now
and every time I spend €4.50 on half a pint of beer I become a bit more of a twat. Why does anyone drink half pints of beer, let alone consider it the default amount of beer a person would want?

However, there are crisps here flavored with specific kinds of cheese. I am on an emmenthal kick right now.

This is a normal post Well there are water cannons for cleaning the streets (spraying pedestrians)
I haven't lived in a city for a long time, so maybe that's normal.

I haven't seen any dogshit get vacuumed, but I'm looking for a job so maybe I can just start doing that for tips.

Astonishing how so many locations are virtually unchanged today.

This is a normal post Shortly after the fall of the Maginot line they realised Cyan was not a good colour for a foot soldier.

This is a normal post I'm fairly sure cyan's the Victoria line.

This is a normal post I remember at GCSE
being somewhat annoyed by two different GCSE history books giving me two different reasons for the blue uniforms of the French.

1. A hangover from the days of bright uniforms, imposing soldiers, etc.
2. A rather... interesting form of camouflage, camouflaging soldiers against the light blue background of the horizon, suitable for the flat terrain of Northern France/Belgium.

Considering the preferred colour of France is often blue, and that they later switched to brown/green I think I know which story I believe.

The last one looks like the opening screen to only fools and horses.
