Time Travel: Before/After Photographs of French Embassy and Consulate Facades


Discover the French embassies and consulates through the ages!

With the help of photos from the Archives of the Miinistry and thanks to the active participation of our embassies and consulates, you can discover 46 “before and after” photographs. These photos will give you an idea of the architecture and surroundings of a selection of embassies and consulates over several decades.

All of the places represented in the web application are easily accessible, either via the interactive map or via the photo slideshow below.

The web application “A journey through time” is also compatible with tactile interface navigation (smartphones and tablets). A vertical cursor allows the user to compare archive and contemporary photos of embassies and consulates.
