Palais de Justice

Unused and undated.
306 Paris - Le Palais au Change et le Palais de Justice - Exchange Bridge and Law-Courts.

I'm posting this today because I was really quite intrigued to see an almost identical card on steviewren's "a little birdie told me so".  That one was dated 1919.  I don't believe I've ever come across a coincidence like this before. Around 100 years ago have passed, so most cards will have vanished, and it shows something that is hardly one of the ten most popular tourist destinations in Paris.

I'm interested that this one says "Palais au Change" and not "Pont du Change", and I'm wondering if it's a misprint.

  1. I love the building, but then I'm an architecture junkie!

  2. It's gorgeous, isn't it? I went to look inside it once.

  3. I have the same photo-card in my collection. No. 306 - however mine is printed - Le Pont au Change........... The reverse is green and divided.



Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
