When it comes to the capital cities of Europe, due to strict regulations by the EU and budget restrictions, the rate of change and progress can be slow. Sometimes thats half the charm, finding yourself walking around the old part of town, where things have remained the same of decades.
Recently popular French news site Rue89 enlisted the help of Parisian photographer Audrey Cerdan to around the revitalised streets of modern day Paris and shoot a collection of photos for their interactive photo set.
In it, photographs of pharmacies, newspaper stands, boulangeries and famous landmarks are all compared from the 1900s through the present day in 2013. Some scenes have changed dramatically, whilst others deviate little from their original design but all of them provide fascinating glimpse into the evolution Paris itself of one of the most beautiful (and most-visited) cities in the world.
