Albumin photograph of the avenue of the Champs Elysées, at the end of the 1800s, in Paris.

Albuminated original photograph of the Champs Elysées, in French "les Champs Elysées". Late 1800s in Paris. Unknown photographer. 16.5 cm x 10.7 cm. Good condition, normal stains considering the more than 100 years of age of the document.

Avenue des Champs Élysées - the Avenue of the Champs Elysées - is the most famous avenue in Paris and, perhaps, the world. In terms of prestige, it only competes with Fifth Avenue in New York or Avenida Copacabana in Rio de Janeiro. 1.9 km long, it starts at Place de la Concorde, near the Louvre, and goes up to Place Charles de Gaulle, where the Arc de Triomphe is located. Imagined by the architect Le Nôtre in 1667, the avenue is one of the main tourist attractions in the French capital.

Albumin proofs allowed for greater contrast and more detailed images than on salted paper (previous photographic process). It was the most common process in the world until 1880, gradually decreasing until 1895.

With one of the most emblematic places in Paris, this photograph is a very well preserved example from the end of the 19th century.
