In just 17 years, from 1853 to 1870, Paris went from the Middle Ages to the 19th century. Baron Haussmann, appointed by Napoleon III, gave the French capital the face we know today. This conference shows the evolution of the old Paris, the works and their purpose through unique photos taken by Charles Marville whom Haussmann had commissioned to photograph what he was going to destroy. Patrice de Moncan is a French writer and historian of Paris and has been collecting original photos of Marville for twenty years. He received the Prix Haussmann and the Prix Charles Garnier from the Société de Géographie for his various publications on Haussmann, Le Paris d’Haussmann; Paris, Avant-Après Haussmann and the reissue of The Memoirs of Haussmann.
