Synopsis

If you are a lover of old times and places, you should see this. For the people initiated in French architecture, who see images from Bucharest, the capital of Romania, this could only be in France, or maybe Belgium. From the 1870s until the late 1920s the city began its most beautiful metamorphosis from a giant village with muddy streets to the most attractive destination of Eastern Europe. The extravagant architecture and cosmopolitan high culture of this period won Bucharest the nickname of Little Paris. This photo album is a walk in time, on the streets and boulevards of this beautiful town, from the beginning of the nineteenth century, until the middle of twentieth century, trying to make revive the atmosphere of that epoch. It is a great collection of over 150 high quality pictures from old Bucharest, even from seventeenth century, until 1949. The images are reproductions from publications of that time, engravings, lithographies, postcards and photos and each has an explication label attached. A brief history of Bucharest is also included and a chronological list of civic events as well. This ebook is a bilingual edition (English / Romanian) and has 175 pages, from which 154 contain pictures that you may copy or print.
