Paris 1957 - until today. Is that part of the allure? We can count on Paris for her famed institutions, museums, monuments, fashion, food, beauty - and we're still saying 'ooh la la', with a sigh today.

'Paris Today' - 1957 style
~Estate sales do give you a peek into the past. I save paper memorabilia of my travels, too. On Sunday, I found a box of world travel maps, guides, cards and more. We can track one of her jaunts - in late May/early June 1957, she went from London to France, via ship, and picked up this free book of what to do in Paris today~
~Here's the stationery from her London hotel
The big Paris names haven't changed -
I wonder how many of the museums have? Probably a few.
~I doubt she did the nightclubs, but Paris is famous for the best, and Lido is still there~
~I wonder how she received an 'invitation personnelle' to Cartier? And sent to her at her hotel?
She had a great time, and alot of friends - only three of ten postcards in her postcard packet were left after her visit. I'm sure she sent the Eiffel Tower postcard first~
