On holiday with Parisian friends, in 1902 Normandy

Parisian family in Normandy 1902

Tucked away in Gallica, the Bibliothèque nationale de France, are a handful of holiday photograph albums. One remembers a group of friends who set off from Paris in 1902, heading for the sunny beaches and pretty orchards around Yport. By the look of it they had a very good time. Born 100 years later these carefree people would have been Instagram stars.

May all our holidays be as jolly.  Bon vacances!

Hats, corsets, multiple ruffles ... nothing is getting in the way of a good time
