After six long years of war the world wanted entertainment and light, and Paris was the place to find it. Peter Weston was a teenager at this time, and he was immediately captivated by the charm of the French capital, from the high-kicking dancing girls of the Folies-Bergère to the awe-inspiring architecture of Sacré Coeur and jumble of cobbled streets around Montmartre. Stephane Grappelli, Charles Trenet, Maurice Chevalier, Jean Sablon, Edith Piaf and countless street accordionists – these were the singers and musicians who delighted Paris audiences in the years after the Second World War and no reminiscences of the city at that time could be complete without them.
