Title The Hôtel de Ville after the Commune
English: Locals and tourists alike gawked at the remains of the Paris city hall, built beginning in 1532 and completed nearly a century later. Along with treasured paintings and sculptural decoration, historically precious archives of the City of Paris were forever lost when the building was set ablaze in May 1871. A reconstruction of the Hôtel de Ville, begun in 1874 and completed a decade later, stands on the same site today.
