French Connection

Marseille has a reputation for being a rough city, being the center for the French Connection back in the 1930-1960's. Heavy measures implemented by the French and US anti drug agencies eventually eventually dismantled the operaions in the 1970's.

I have attached some pictures from the heart of Marseille; following a walk from the central Port and heading north up the hill leading to Le Panier, an area that had a notorious bad reputation. It is believed this picturesque area has a huge potential in the years to come, however still quite a lot of work remains before it is turned into a touristic area, and the economic problems have put it at halt. Pictures taken on a hot summer Sunday a few years ago, which explains the almost total abscence of people on the streets.

E520, Zuiko 9-18

Thanks for looking,
Tord

I enjoyed these too Tord.
Some great images and I love the colours and those blue shutters.
Looks like a fascinating city to explore.

Re: French Connection

I've never been to Marseille but from those shots I definitely now have a feel for the place. Very nice to see, thanks for posting.
