    Take A Tour Of Paris In The 1950s

    Guys! We invented a time machine. Or as the French would say, une machine de time.

    Don't you wish...

    That you could go back in time and roam the streets of Paris in the '50s and '60s? Just like Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face? Let's take a trip through the past...

    First we can hop on one of these tour busses.

    Or perhaps you'd prefer this more romantic style of transport?

    Perhaps you'd rather have a more stylish tour of the city as seen in this reel of glamorous fashions.

    Or we can explore the more mod side of Paris.

    But of course, you'll want to hit the big sights as well. Here's Notre Dame. Can you even recognize it under all that dirt?

    After that, we can wander the streets behind Notre Dame. These quiet passages are time machines themselves.

    Later in the afternoon, we'll join this impromptu dance party by the Seine.

    That Super-8 camera will come in handy to record all of your fantastic vacation footage.

    Let's head on over to the Right Bank.

    For some shopping we can first check out La Samaritaine.

    Before we do more shopping, let's take a break for a café and pastry at Café de la Paix.

    Just a few blocks away, more amazing fashion awaits us at Printemps.

    Of course, we'll make a stop in romantic Montmartre, all the way at the north of Paris.

    And perhaps look around for a café where we can take a long afternoon pause with a bottle of wine.

    Of course, our day wouldn't be complete without seeing this. Le sigh...

    Don't you just love this city?
