AnnecyThen & Now

Set of eleven then and now photos of Annecy.

Canal du Vassé from Le Pont des Amours. The name Pont des Amours - Lover's Bridge, comes from the fact that the bridge was once where prostitutes hanged out.

View of Cathédrale Saint-Pierre d'Annecy from the narrow Rue Jean Jacques Rousseau.

Entrance to the Château d'Annecy, built between 12th and 16th centuries and once owned by the Counts of Geneva.

Notre-Dame-de-Liesse church is a reconstruction of the old Notre-Dame church built from 1360 and 1394, but destroyed during the French revolution.

Èglise Saint-François d'Annecy with Mont Veyrier in the background. Not quite the same view as the orgional postcard looks to have been taken from the Palais de l'Isle and the 'now' photo was taken from the street.

This 1884 bronze statue of Germain Sommeiller was meant for Sommeiller's home town of Saint-Jeoire-en-Faucigny (now just Saint-Jeoire), but that wasn't possible. Taken to Paris during WWII and almost melted down, this statue was saved after the war and went back to Annecy in 1953. In 1964 it moved to its present location - square du 8 mai 1945, next to a playground.

Two 'then' views of the port in Annecy with Mont Veyrier in the distance.

Two views, from oposite ends of Rue du Pâquier.

Two views of Rue Sainte Claire, both looking in the same direction.
