Napoleon III and Paris

Louis-Emile Durandelle... The New Paris Opera (Ornamental Sculpture) (1865–72, Albumen silver print from glass negative). From Napoleon III and Paris at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. "...This dossier photography exhibition will focus on the changing shape of Paris during the Second Empire, when the city’s narrow streets and medieval buildings gave way to the broad boulevards and grand public works that still define the urban landscape of the French capital."
