Paris 1951:
the remaining photos

These are the photos that do not belong on the train, Métro or bus pages.
Some of the colour photos were on Dufaycolor: definitely a lower-resolution medium; although adequate for larger size films,
in 35mm the red-green-blue reseau (Dufay took the word from the French réseau) becomes evident.

I would like to thank Philippe ARNOULD for sending me information about many of these pictures.

Something new to us Londoners: an underpass, where the main traffic flow at an intersection went under the cross-traffic. Note the cobbled surface, no lane markings, almost no traffic.

This is, I believe, the house where Robert Louis Stevenson stayed, in Barbizon, which styles itself  "village de peintres, Seine et Marne".

Not the Résistance, not terrorist action, just a tree that had fallen across the road near Fontainbleau.
