This collection of postcards provides a window into a world now lost forever: Paris in its golden age. Leonard Pitt’s selection offers a stimulating view of an era in which both Paris and the ‘carte postale’ were in vogue. Pitt’s choice of medium introduces the reader to a rich and alive social world, in which, during the early years of the twentieth century, over one million postcards were produced and exchanged a day.


Exchanges range from the passing romances of Parisian street-vendors through to the lovesick expat writing to his sweetheart back home: revel and be transported by this exciting mix of landmark and anecdote, the glorious and elegant commingling with the quaint and nostalgic.
