Here young Rollo Holiday – whose fictional travels are documented in a series of books – leaves London by way of a steamer from the English New Haven to go to Paris. En route he gets lessons in French money and prices before landing at Dieppe and continuing on through Rouen to Paris, where he and his companion see the Triumphal Arch (Arc du Triomphe), the Tuileries Garden, the column at the Place Vendome, the Grand Alley, the Elysian Fields (Champs-Élysées), the Obelisk of Luxor,the Hippodrome, and the Garden of Plants (Jardin des Plantes), where they breakfast on one of the huge loaves of bread then popular. And so on, as they explore the Paris of Napoleon III before leaving for Switzerland (and a later book).
