About This Photo

The Gardes Républicains, part of the national military, were a perennial presence in the streets of Paris and thus a fitting subject for Eugène Atget. His photographs depicted all that could be seen in and around Paris, especially its citizens. Lined up along the boulevard du Palais, the guards have assembled in front of the Palais de Justice, under the oldest clock in the city. This vintage photograph dates to 1898.
