Dawn of the Third Republic: A Guided Stroll Through the Heart of the New Paris
Thursday, May 6, 3:00 – 4:30 pm, with Laura Moore
This guided walk will be led by Laura Moore, creator of the website, “Story of a City” (Paris, of course). It will start at Place de Dublin, the location of Caillebotte’s famous 1877 painting, “Paris Rainy Weather.” It will end at Place Edouard VII, where we will pause to chat over coffee, tea, or apéro in a café.
The period between 1870 and 1890 was a time of great transition and transformation for the city of Paris. It is a time period known by many names; The Third Republic, the Long 19th Century, the Paris Commune, the Long Depression, and most famously, the start of the Belle Epoque. It was a time of cultural and artistic innovation and financial devastation, of political instability and relative peace. But above all else, it was the dawn of a new era for both Paris and France.
Join Laura Moore and fellow flâneuses to learn more about this fascinating and contradictory time period and the stories of the people who lived it.
