Footnotes

  • Comprising: "Hotel de Ville;" "Vue General (from a bridge on the Seine);" "Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel (illustrated)," and the "Nouveau Louvre."

    From 1853 to 1857, Baldus worked on a second project for the government, this time singlehandedly photographing Paris' chief monuments, including the Pantheon, Arc de Triomphe and the Louvre, among others. Named 'Villes de France photographiées', this was a vast project that produced twenty folios in all, each containing at least three photographs and each costing the government 30 francs to buy from the photographer. The earnings and further fame that Baldus gained from this project enabled him to photograph the changing face of France and, particularly, urban Paris and its monuments, for the rest of his career.
