A quiet road

I think that I would like to spend a warm afternoon in spring taking a stroll down this road.

I looked on Google Earth.  There are still plenty of trees and also plenty of houses.  It’s a busy main road nowadays, so not much chance of a peaceful walk.  Did I find the same houses with steps leading up to them?  I can’t be sure…

Children playing in the park

Just over 100 years ago these children were enjoying themselves in a park in Paris.

These are exactly the kind of postcards that I would collect if I could afford them.  There again, if I didn't sell postcards like these I would never have had the chance to see them, let alone share them on this blog!
