    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.

  5. 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.

    Shakespeare and Company's first location at 8 rue Dupuytren (1919-22)

    The Cafe du Dome is still there but unfortunately online reviews doesn't give it very high marks.

    Maybe when I retire I'll open up a book store and have a little bar in there as well. I love old pictures like this.

    Hem at Shakespeare and Company

    "On the night of 4 March he had gone to the bathroom at his flat in the rue Férou and yanked what he thought was the lavatory chain down on top of him, only to find it was the cord of the skylight..it splipped Hemingway's head open,needing nine stitches."

    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.
