Vintage Snapshots Showcase the Thriving Streets of Paris in the 1960s

Taken throughout the streets of Paris over 50 years ago, this series of black and white images captures a sophistication and joie de vivre that encapsulates the infamous City of Lights. Infused with a sense of nostalgia, the way only a collection of vintage black and white pictures can be, these images reveal a window into the idyllic time period of Paris in the 1960's.

With a distinct street-photography style, the snapshots showcase a candid side of Parisian citizens as they go about their lives, enjoying a coffee and cigarette along the River Seine. However, despite the fact that these photographs were taken decades ago, Paris – with its quaint cafs and bohemian lifestyle–remains as recognizable as ever.
