The city of Paris is vaunted by travellers for many reasons -- romance, excitement, and adventure, just to name a few -- and looking through the Paris in Color photo collection, it's plain to see why Paris has earned the lofty spot at the forefront of our collective travel minds for generations.

The Paris in Color photo collection highlights a series of images that alternates between some of France's most iconic imagery (the original Moulin Rouge) to shots that simply capture banal, everyday activities of French living in the early 20th century (a shop boy pushing an overloaded cart through the city square).

It's hard to look at the Paris in Color photo collection and not be imbued with a strong sense of old-world nostalgia. Take the time to enjoy this trip down history lane.
