I thought this might be of interest to some. Photo by Frank Scherschel circa 1944. Frank Scherschel was a photographer during D-Day, and took color photos in France during its liberation, following the US Army.

    In 2013 I was at the Place Pigalle looking for the location, and I THINK I found it... but if some nice person in Paris were to take a picture of what the site looks like right now, that would be nice...
    I live in a little tourist town called Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario, Canada, which is about twenty miles north of Niagara Falls.

    If you are ever planning on visiting the beautiful Niagara area, feel free to PM me and perhaps we can get together and do some jamming.

    The flag to the right is similar to the Corsican Flag, but not exactly the same. I wonder what the story is behind it.

  • Hi,
    Thanks for this beautiful colour photo!!!

    Here it what the place looked in November 2007. The Corsican flag is probably linked to the fact that before it was sold to Django the place was run by Lulu de Montmartre (her real name was Franchi and she was corsican). It is not impossible that it was a sign that the place was Under the protection of the corsican maffia.

    Yes François, that seems likely. Thanks for the background information!

  • Hi Svanis,
    Are there other interesting Paris colour photos by Franck Scherchel available. May be a site?
    They remind me of the photos by photographer André ZUCCA, a french collaborationnist who was shooting Paris in colour for the german propaganda magazine "Signal".
