This print is one in a series of Epinal images from the mid 1800s showing different parts of Paris. The Cascade de St Cloud was once in the grounds of the Château St Cloud, not too far from Paris, which was purchased by Marie Antoinette for herself and her children. Napoléon Bonaparte also stayed here when he was Emperor, but the beautiful château was destroyed during the Franco-Prussian war of 1870. The Cascade is one of the few surviving structures from the grounds.

There is very little retouching made to the image after scanning, so as to retain the lovely, vintage look. Any spots or marks are a condition of the original work.
