Bonjour ! This week’s carte postale features the Sacré-Cœur Basilica in Paris. A big Thank You to Carolyn of Hawkfeather Stories blog and Savage Pickers (fine vintage and antiques shop) who found this vintage postcard in a little thrift shop and sent it to me.

This postcard is almost 100 years old and it’s in excellent condition

When construction began in the late 19th century, this basilica broke tradition. While other basilicas being built at the time were dedicated to the Virgin Mary (Notre-Dame) in the cities of Lyon, Lourdes, and Marseille, this basilica in Paris was dedicated to the Sacred Heart (Sacré-Cœur).
