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!
