In the post-war era, Berlin-born photographer Walter Limot documented French cinema, portraying many timeless stars.
The same cinematic quality can also be found in this 1940 image of an unnamed lady with fashionable hat and gloves. One of our favourites for its elegant mystery, it was taken in the Jardin du Luxembourg, Paris.
