I'm looking for books (in English) about Paris in 1899 for a research project. General cultural history is fine, as is a slightly broader period (1890-1910), but I'm looking for more than just a section in a larger French history book. Ideally, I'd find something like Margaret MacMillan's Paris 1919, but for 1899. I'm having difficulty finding something this specific via Google/Amazon/the library, as there are thousands of listings for "Paris", so I'm hoping you'll recommend books you've enjoyed or found useful.

I'm looking for a brand of blue jeans in I bought in Paris several years ago. I don't think they are a French brand - no French on the labels. The word for the brand name, "Missy," refers to "an average female size" in America, so Google has been no help. They were bought in the 11e arrondissement of Paris, probably sur Rue du Faubourg-Saint Antoine, on the sidewalk in front of an unknown shop for €10 or €15. Here are pictures of the tags, labels and buttons.

Me, wife, kids, sister and Mum want to spend the October half-term week (the last full week of October) in Paris. Hotels don't work well with tinies, so we're looking for a self-catering apartment. Where would MeFites recommend, or recommend looking? Not fussed about location (within reason), but we like the 5e and 6e. We aren't on our upppers, but price is a factor (we only live in Brighton so this is more bonus extra holiday than Trip of a Lifetime). Happy to use a company, or arrange something privately - even a house swap if people fancy a week in Britain's shingle capital.
I've recently moved to Paris, and I'd like to know if there are any pubs where I can catch NFL games on Sunday nights. I know they will start pretty late in the evening, but I just want to have a beer and watch a game. Bonus points for places that might air Jets/Giants.
Help me buy a scooter in Paris. I've just moved to Paris for work, and will be getting my carte de sejour (longterm visa) in a few weeks. I would like to find a decent second-hand Vespa or something similar. Some of the questions I have: Can I get a nice ride for under 1000€? Will I need an expensive French license (I currently hold one from NJ)? What type of insurance will I need and how much should I expect to pay? I'm looking to buy in September, so any help would be appreciated!

I have a friend who has decided to go live in Paris for two months or more. She's searching for her next career and life move, and has always loved the City of Lights. I'm looking for a gift that is inspired, but practical. It also has to pack and travel well--not weigh her down. She's going to be free and hopes the city will be a sort of muse. She's set on luggage, has a place to stay, won't have a car, loves fashion, going out on the town, and I'm sure has plenty of maps. Somewhere in the range of 100 euros.
