Earthlore Explorations  Notre Dame de Paris
Northeast Perspective - During the Commune of 1871


 

 


View of Notre Dame de Paris from the Northeast during the Commune of 1871. Barricades can be seen in the foreground. The smoky area to the left of the humble fortification is a faint trace of human movement which the camera captured during an extended time exposure. At least 20,000 people were killed as a result of this popular rising, occurring during Prussia's invasion of France. The archbishop of Paris was among those who lost their lives during this crisis.
