NYC – The virtual NYC Public Library, unexpected results

Unexpected but Appreciated

From Harlem to France in one easy click

Sometimes, when doing research on the internet, you find an unexpected find. Today, as I was researching pictures of Harlem suddenly there appeared some French art work. How it happened, who knows? These are very well done and as I  do not know the language I share them as is. Think of them as finding something in your attic that you were not looking for.
