Avenue des Champs Élysées - the Avenue of the Champs Elysées - is the most famous avenue in Paris and, perhaps, in the world. In terms of prestige, it competes only with Quinta Avenida 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 tests 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.

This photograph is a rare example from the end of the 19th century representing one of the most emblematic places in Paris, empty.
