History and Old Stuff...
I found this photograph tucked into an old book. The words "Rue Royale" are printed on the back of the photo. It looks like a photo purchased at a souvenir shop, rather than an amateur snapshot.
A little research turned up some paintings of the Rue Royale in Paris by Edouard Leon Cortès, and they do seem to show the same street and buildings as the photograph.
I have to rely on my best guess here. Since I have never visited France, I can't say that this is definitely a photograph of the Rue Royale, a famous street of Paris. But I think it is.
