Dance, Scandal, & Spectacle

Improbable Walks, Season 2, Episode #4: This walk starts out on a bridge with a view of the Eiffel Tower, then heads over to the Right Bank and glamorous Avenue Montaigne. Below, you have a photo of the 1970s Pont de l'Alma, with its original 19th-century Zouave statue; the Flame of Liberty with flowers commemorating Diana, Princess of Wales; and flooded Avenue Montaigne in 1910--no wonder Apollinaire described these boats! And the next row of images features the magnificent THEATRE DES CHAMPS ELYSEES, with two of its dance legends, the great Vaslav Nijinksy and the incomparable Josephine Baker.
