Fresh colors, some marginal soiling.

Ca.1820

"From the fashion of vauxhalls, inspired by the garden founded in London in 1732, to the latest avatars of roller coasters, the whole of the northern boulevards district is very quickly promoted in the capital, less by a declared desire for urban development from a municipal source, than by the constant promotion that the Parisians themselves make of these city limits where their leisure and their pleasures are organized. The democratization of these leisure activities, from the shows from the fair and the parades of the boulevard, to the balls of the vauxhalls and the gardens, finally resulted in the extraordinary vogue of the roller coasters under the Restoration, indifferently frequented by the people, the new bourgeois, the tourists and the ministers."
