Then & Now: Paris

Here is the third in my series on then and now photos.  As I am a French teacher (see my blog, where I have cross-posted this), it shouldn't surprise you that I go to Paris every few years.  I have published to Flickr quite a large collection of photos, so I thought it fitting to do a then and now post with this iconic city.
