Metz, a good-sized city on France’s northeast border, has a beautiful cathedral, the oldest working opera house in the country and other historical buildings.

But one of my favorite memories was the flea market, where one could by rabbits from a guy in raincoat or pick up World War II surplus

Here are some photos taken by my father in the 1970s. They aren’t good reproductions, I just photographed glossy prints.
