You might enjoy this short movie of Paris in the 1920's featuring the famous Josephine Baker. Filmed before sound technology, it is amusing to see the famous cancan finale without sound.
One of the most famous landmarks of 1920s Paris, the original Shakespeare and Company which was at 12 rue de l'Odeon from 1922 to 1941.

Paris police station, 1928
Paris traffic 1920's
This was recommended to me, although I have not ordered it yet (I have a bit of a reading backlog.)
Definitely on my list. It could be argued that at least part of the reason that I live in Vienna is that I fell in love with the whole “American Expat scene in Paris in the 20s” when I was a romantic youth.
Jean Cocteau -- La Toison D'Or (1929)
(The Golden Fleece)
I'd go back in time to live there in a heartbeat.
I was very excited when I got this book and really wanted to love it, but came away mixed. It's a bit plodding and its narrative skips around a lot - from this persons to that, this moment to that without a lot of transition or (to my mind) logic. I've found I enjoy it more reading it in small bits, but still, overall, not an engaging read, just okay.
Drinking wine on the Eiffel Tower in 1928. WOW!!!!!
