 Paris, 14 July 1950

DSCN0009

This is a commercial print, which I purchased at Hobby Lobby.
Curiously, the name of the photographer is not given  Like the Brassai photograph on the opposite wall, it shows a set of steps leading
down the hill in the Montmartre district.  The center of Paris can be seen in the distance.  Unlike the Brassai photograph, this looks
like it is an unposed candid shot.  I saw this exact view on my most recent trip to Paris, in January 2002.  It appeared like the
houses in the foreground had had some of the windows replaced with newer ones, but very little else was changed.
