A description of Paris between the years 1787-1789. An Englishman visits Paris and this is what he had to say...
"Walking, which in London is so pleasant and clean that ladies do it every day, is here a toil and a fatigue to a man and an impossibility to a well-dressed lady. Paris is an ineligible residence for persons who cannot afford to keep a coach, a convenience which is as dear as at London." An English Visitor
