Agnes Salomon Paris (1900-1910)

The other week in a car boot I found 2 old "Souvenir" photos and postcards album. They contained many postcards from European cities from around the turn of the century but also some very clear, sharp and large sized, (22 x 28 cm.) rare "albumen" prints of Paris. There are no automobiles visible, so dated around 1900 (1890-1910. What a wonderful world. It was the Paris of impressionist Camille  Pissarro (1830-1903). 

Pissarro died when Agnes Salomon, as a young Hamburg woman and student,  had just arrived in Paris. When all the American, German and other foreign students, the collectors and artists gathered. To be immersed in art and "modernism". The centre of the World.

I've put the originals under the scanner for sharing (they embiggen by mouse click). PS: The originals and the books are available for trade or swapping.
