"The Folies Bergère is a cabaret music hall, located in Paris, France. Established in 1869, the house was at the height of its fame and popularity from the 1890s' Belle Époque through the 1920s' Années folles. The institution is still in business, and is always a strong symbol of French and Parisian life." [W]

Thank you for posting these! I've seen a few of the Folies posters over the years, but never this many all at once! It's great to see so many all together and to look at them collectively.
