Hemingway or no, this is a lovely photo... nostalgic, elegant, and just... it makes the viewer feel GOOD. Nice find.

Suddenly found out that your taste in books is very similar to mine. And Hemingway's Paris is something that fascinates me deeply so I will keep visiting your blog :)

Now I've regretted of not buying a Hemingway during my part time working in a bookfair. :(

I've heard of him pretty much, but haven't read his collections yet.

I'm sure Peter will find an updated version of this same street! I've also been around, and it must be close to an old restaurant that used to be there in the 70s...
