Postcard Friendship Friday


  1. Looks like a good place for strolling.

  2. There are more lampposts than cars! Well, that's one thing that has changed in Paris.

  3. There wasn't much traffic back in the 20s!! Strolling here now might not be as pleasant!

  4. How perfectly wonderful. Sometimes, when I see a postcard like this one, I wish I could go back in time to walk there. Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!
