la photo du jour

image

A great photo from Alfred Eisenstaedt of children watching a puppet show in the Tuileries Garden in Paris (1963). This was taken at the climax of the show just as the dragon is slain.

Eisenstaedt is perhaps best know for his V-J day photo in Times Square of an American sailor kissing a young woman.

Google have just digitised and released the full archive from LIFE magazine going right back to 1860s. Click here to see it
