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 usual interests are cooking, wine, horticulture, art, and old books, but lately I've been obsessed with saving for a piece of land, so I can practice sustainability and learn to live as close to the land as possible, and then help others to do the same. To relax I listen to Dharma talks. Namaste!
