It's rather interesting to bring these shops up on Google maps. Le Cherche Midi still looks just like this, with the bright red awning; the number 22 above. The business is located on Rue du Cherche-Midi, so that's easy to find and remember! However, their new red awning uses a different font for the restaurant name and they have added "bistro Italien" on one end and "depuis 1978" (opening date).

André Renoux (1939-2002) is considered the "father" of the Paris School of Urban Realism. You may have seen Renoux's Paris shop scenes on Williams Sonoma plates. His original limited-edition serigraphs sell anywhere from $600 to $2,000. Although these postcards are not my usual antique fare, I wanted to offer these because Renoux's postcards are difficult for the average person in the United States to access and they are highly collectible. From what I can ascertain, there are approximately 70 cards in this collection of Renoux's work.
