old postcards of Biarritz, France

These old french postcards are from the turn of the century, before the age of the automobile, as you can see from the horse and carriages in some of the views. Biarritz is an old french port near Spain in the south western region of France. Known as a whaling settlement in the twelfth century, the city became more renowned when Empress Eugenie (the wife of Napoleon III) built a palace on the beach (now the Hotel du Palais). Today surfers from around the world make it a destination for the nightlife and the waves. Enjoy these old views!

About redbudart

I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, just outside of Portland, Oregon. My passions are cuisine, wine, horticulture, art, and vintage things, especially old books. I moved here in 2014, work a day job in finance, and spend the rest of my time working on my dream of living off the land, and teaching young people how to as well. Stop by my Etsy shops, where all proceeds are going towards the goal. Thank you and Namaste!
