Question about locales in old pictures taken in France
April 18, 2012 5:38 AM   Subscribe

A friend asked me (because I have been to France a couple times) if I knew the locations in a couple of snapshots taken by his father many years ago (I presume after WWII) while in France serving in the armed forces. I have no idea, having only been to Paris and environs, and thought there was a chance that a French, or French-traveling, MeFites would know. Thanks in advance to anyone who has an idea.

The second one is Notre Dame de la Garde in Marseille.

(Here is a view from the same footbridge.)

The first one looks like the Fontaine Sainte-Jean in Melun.

More views.

Saint-Jean, of course.

Here's what seems to be the same angle as the photo.
