A pair of old prints in color---I believe, some sort of lithography process similar to chromolithography in feeling, one featuring the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, the other the Second Empire "Pont au Change" bridge connecting the Ile de la Cite to the Rive Droite. The current bridge was rebuilt between 1856 and 1860 and therefore bears the letter N, the imperial insignia of Napoleon III. It is composed of three 31 meter long arches and is 30 meters wide. The frames are not attractive and are worn so will need to be replaced. As currently framed these measure 11" by 14" (prints themselves 6 1/4" by 9 1/4"). The prints appear to be in generally good condition, some even oxidation (browning) of the paper is evident when one compares the area that had been hidden by the mat. Re-matting would easily hide the lighter area.
