Guided tour in French

La naissance des grands magasins. Mode, design, jouets, publicité, 1852-1925

Beginning with the birth of the department store in the Second Empire and ending with its consecration at the 1925 International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts, the tour reveals the economic transformations and social mutations that were sweeping through French society of the day. From Bon Marché to Samaritaine, from Printemps to Galeries Lafayette, the tour is also an invitation to dive into the 19th Century Paris of Emile Zola’s famous novel, Au Bonheur des Dames.
