Boulevard du Temple

Boulevard du Temple

This is the photograph I had in mind this morning, taken in 1838/1839 by Louis Daguerre. It shows Boulevard du Temple, a very busy street, but because of a 10-minute exposure time, only the man polishing shoes and his client appear in the lower left corner.
