  1. Wow, you’re on a roll with all these vintages scenes of French gardens and parks. The view of Pau was especially surprising. I spent a couple weeks there in high school and it certainly didn’t look like that then. Best part was being close to the Pyrenees and hiking there. Interesting to see how these places once looked compared to more recent times.
