Cindy, These are wonderful. Are you traveling in France on your way from Rwanda to Germany? (big change!) Or have you just had France on your mind? Your recent vintage photos of France make me want to go back there soon.
Aren’t they nice? They have some qualities of paintings. I was thinking about France last week, and then I found these photochroms on the Library of Congress site, which I hadn’t seen before.
I’m afraid our travel to Germany just involved a mad dash through Heathrow Airport.
