Rue Royale

History and Old Stuff...



Rue Royale

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 Cort├Ęs, 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.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.
(Author unknown)

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
