Paris Vintage – 1967

    Paris Vintage – 1967

    The year 1967 in Paris was marked by the fabulous exhibition of the treasures of Pharaoh Tutankhamun at the Petit Palais. Absolute record, one million 300,000 thousand visitors and the first of them, a modern pharaoh who came in a DS Citroën, the General de Gaulle.

    1967, Parisians are more and more in a hurry … Like lemons, the metro, morning and evening is crowded, outside, it is difficult to find a taxi as Annie Philippe sings to go out at night or rush to the Gare d’Austerlitz and jump in the very last fashionable train “the Capitol” which makes the route Paris Toulouse at 200 kilometers per hour.

    In Paris, everything wanted to be modern in 1967, except perhaps a sword duel, between two politicians, Gaston Deferre, future Minister of the Interior, and René Ribière, deputy of Val d’Oise; the first having treated the second of “asshole” in full debate in the national assembly. Supreme affront, it is therefore in a private garden of Neuilly sur Seine that will take place the last duel in the history of France, a practice banned since the 17th century by Cardinal Richelieu.

    1967, Jacques Dutronc, boy from de la Trinité, cigarillos on his lips sings for all Parisiennes, Citroën employees to the cashiers of Prisunic with a preference for Francoise Hardy and the pin-ups who frequent the select clubs of the capital: chez Régine, rue de Ponthieu and at Castel, rue Princesse.

    Two good news by way of conclusion, the Parisians 1967 inaugurate theParis Lille motorway while they discover for the first time on their televisions the world in color.
