Drawing drawn more than a century ago, that still amaze with their beauty and detailing.
Eugène Viollet-le-Duc "27 January 1814 – 17 September 1879) was a French architect and theorist, famous for his interpretive restorations of medieval buildings. Born in Paris, he was a major Gothic Revival architect." Extract from wikipedia.  Fantastic illustrations that tell a story about how things where at the time they were drawn.  It's like having a window that opens in the 1800s, that lets us share a view Viollet-le-Duc had at the time.  Enjoy this this time machine excursion and remember to take in the sites.  images via oldbookillustrations.
