Rouen, France

Three lovely views of a beautiful city.
Rouen is the capital of Upper Normandy and has a population of about 110,000. These pictures date from around 1905, long before the city was heavily damaged at the end of World War II, and long after Joan of Arc was burned at the stake in Rouen (May 30, 1431.)


  1. I have rather neglected my postcard collection over the years. These are wonderful examples and quite inspirational. Thank you.

  2. I am going there today. Mental note: buy postcards.
