That's why when I ran across this expanded map of Paris for 50 cents at a loft sale in SoHo, I picked it up. It's not particularly old; the Centre Pompidou that was built in the 1970s is marked. But it pre-dates the Euro, since someone handed over 145 French francs to purchase it. Inside was a ticket for the bus, and on a blank page some restaurant addresses. And for the few pennies that I rendered for this little book, I'll be able to use it for my next trip -- or at least for an afternoon of daydreaming.
