If you missed the Napoleon III and Paris Exhibition then do not fret! You can view select images from it on the Metropolitan Museum website.  Here is the link.

"This dossier photography exhibition will focus on the changing shape of Paris during the Second Empire, when the city’s narrow streets and medieval buildings gave way to the broad boulevards and grand public works that still define the urban landscape of the French capital."
