Former Halles of Paris (26 photos)

Former “Belly of Paris” perfectly described by Zola in 1873, Les Halles was until 1970 the commercial heart of Paris, a teeming place of exchange and supply that stretched over the centuries.

Thanks to pictures taken by photographer Thomas McAvoy  for LIFE magazine in 1956, and other archival photos, an immersion in the the old days of Les Halles.
