    Paris celebrates end of World War One.

  • Description

    World War One - Armistice Day, November, 1918 - Celebration in Paris, France.

    Good shot of a man on a ladder putting up a sign: "La Guerre est Gagnee - Vive la France - - Vivent les Allies!" ( The War is Won - Long Live France - Long Live the Allies). CU French & British soldiers kissing women in Red Cross uniforms. Soldiers and civilians parade down the street carrying flags (mostly French tricolour, some Stars & Stripes) and waving. More of exuberant joyful crowds: masses of people swarming in the streets, people riding on top of vehicles.
