While U.S. flags fly at left, the street markets in Paris are open
to the public once more, following the capture of city on
August 25, 1944. Anything from soup to nuts can be bought
at the open-air department stores. At right, a Jeep, the only
sign of war, stops and its driver watches a throng of young
Parisian girls shopping for blouses (Acme News photograph,
dated September 7, 1944).
