Le quatorze juillet...Bastille Day Celebration, early 1960's!

A Happy Bastille Day to my friends in France! I hope you'll enjoy this fun vintage look at a Bastille Day celebration on the streets of Paris, nearly 50 years ago. 

OrinBoborin, YouTube contributor, comments that it was "filmed around 1962, from the Italian documentary La Donna Nel Mundo. Narrated in English by Peter Ustinov, its aim is to explore how different life is for women in the many cultures of the world."   Don't miss the last part of the video - and the intriguing statue-kissing tradition. 

This is my kind of celebration!  ;- )


I love all of your comments - it's what makes blogging fun! C'mon, let's get a conversation going...
