Photographer's Note

The Carnaval de Paris : "Promenade du Boeuf Gras, l'Arche de No".

This is what the Carnival de Paris launched worldwide in the 1891 confetti and serpentine in 1892.

The crowd is such that at Carnival in Paris, late nineteenth century and early twentieth century, it stops the movement of vehicles on the Grands Boulevards on Shrove Tuesday and Thursday from mid-Lent.
After 45 years of oblivion, the initiative for the revival of Carnival of Paris is taken by Basil Pachkoff in 1993. He resurrects the procession from the Promenade du Boeuf Gras in 1998 and the Queens laundresses Mid-Lent in 2009.
