I have a huge folder called places and it is one of my favorite files of images. I put together this video of places from the 18th century. Starting in the country and areas just outside Paris, are images of people busy, moving through streets, farms or markets.
After this the images change from black and white to color, with ladies moving through promenades, to parties and card games. The trip ends with several grand buildings.
So consider this your 5 minute 'escape' on an otherwise slow Tuesday!
