Time travel back to Paris of the roaring 20's, flappers, bobbed hair, cloche hats, and dancing to jazz!
Brought to life with AI deep learning techniques.
Silent movie actress Pola Negri can be seen at the now long forgotten treehouse restaurant bar - Robinson Pavillon Lafontaine.
"Robinson" was a popular guinguette ( a bar where you could drink and dance outdoors). Located at 32 Rue de Malabry, in a small district Le Plessis-Robinson, south of the city.
The pavilion is preserved today as a front only. Long gone are the bright young things of the roaring twenties.
We also see the famous Cafe de la Paix on the Boulevard des Capucines, as well as Le Dôme Café in the Latin quarter.
This is an edit from a series of travelogues by early film maker Burton Holmes, who in fact coined the term 'travelogue'.
Holmes gave lectures, and included slides and motion pictures of his journeys.
