Day or night, in winter, fall, spring and summer; in rain, snow, sleet or shine, Cortès depicted Parisians strolling on the Place Madeleine, Place Saint Michel, Place de l'Opera, or Place de la Republique; past Notre Dame, the Moulin Rouge, the Theatre du Vaudeville, or the Metro George V; on the Rue Royale, the Porte Saint Denis, the Boulevard des Capuccines or along the Seine.
