The Last Time I Saw Paris by Elliot Paul

By Elliot Paul

Elliot Paul, an American journalist, first walked into rue de l. a. Huchette in the summertime of 1923. 'There,' he wrote, 'I chanced on Paris.' His biography of the road brings to lifestyles a forged of charaters, from the stately M. de Malancourt to l'Hibou the tramp, from the culturally precocious Hyacinthe to a bevy of prostitutes. Their friendships and enmities, tradition and lifestyle are woven right into a tapestry as compelling as a unique. but because the possibility of the second one global battle grows and the political polarisation among correct and left intensifies, it endows their quiet, heroic lives with a sad poignancy. The final Time I observed Paris is without doubt one of the nice photographs of an unforgettable city.
