Last year I blogged about the Art Deco buildings I found in Paris on my first ever visit to the city. When I went back last week, I found some of the same buildings, but also several more. Most of the architecture dates back before the 1920s and 30s when Art Deco was in its heyday, so it’s always a pleasant surprise to run into these buildings.
I saw these two last year and was happy to walk past them again on this recent trip.
I also found these new (to me) marine Deco buildings. This corner one is across from the Musee d’Orsay.
And one afternoon we sat in a cafe across the street from this one on the Left Bank. The chimneys look like they belong on a boat, n’est-ce pas?
One the street where we stayed, I spotted this old Art Deco movie theater.
