Stereoscope Card - no 238 Le Parc des Buttes Chaumont.


A place with an insalubrious history. Chaumont comes from chauve- bare, as in free from vegetation. As such it was only useful as a quarry just outside of the city limits. The park today was a creation of Napoleon III and the reorganization of Paris under Baron Haussmann in 1867. A bit of the quarry remains: the rock formation is a pile of stones left over from the creation of the park. The lake is manmade. 

Published by Le Nouveau Paris - Photographie C. G. a Paris.

Good condition with handwritten French title on the reverse of card.

Weighs 0.5oz and measures 6  7/8 x 3  1/4 inches.
