The Place du Tetre

The Place du Tetre

The Place du Tetre in Montmartre is world famous for the artists who work there, and on a hot day it is a good place to enjoy a bottle of wine at one of the many cafés and watch the world go by. I first photographed this area in 1965, sadly none of the material survives.
