26 vintage Photos of Paris

Neurdein brothers

A man fishing on the banks of the Seine; Ménilmontant and its cobblestones; the Halles market overflowing with produce and sellers of all kinds. Many photos of vintage Paris in the early 20th century, can be found in an extraordinary Tumblr: Chamade-Vintage French Photos. 

Pictures that are a real trip back in time to explore the streets of Paris between 1900 and 1960. Opportunity also for who knows the city, make some comparisons with Paris today. Big names like Ronis, Doisneau, Boubat but photos rarely seen before.
